Nova Southeastern Teams With Association
On Training Distance Education Managers

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.
The U.S. Distance Learning Association has teamed up with Florida-based Nova Southastern University to launch a certificate program to help institutional managers integrate electronic education practices into their business processes.
Debuting Oct. 8-9, the “Distance Learning Leaders” certificate program requires two on-site days at Nova’s Fort Lauderdale campus, which will be followed by six weeks of online coursework. According to the partners, the certificate program will train distance education managers in establishing strategic direction, procurement, implementation, distance learning management and evaluation. 
Target candidates include chief learning officers, higher ed distance learning directors, training directors and managers, as well as education technology directors and faculty.
“This is a ‘must-take course’ for anyone in the distance learning industry,” says Dr. John G. Flores, executive director of the U.S. Distance Learning Association (USDLA).
The USDLA, which was formed in 1987 and is located in Boston, serves the distance learning community by providing advocacy, information, networking and opportunity for members and their institutions.
