Lakeland University’s Madison Center has a stellar relationship with Madison Area Technical College (MATC), and the two institutions recently collaborated to host an important event.
The annual Flexible Learning Conference, designed for Wisconsin Technical College System employees, took place at LU’s Madison Center. More than 100 attendees from Wisconsin’s 16 technical schools participated.
“Year after year, Lakeland University is consistently the top or one of the top private institution transfer destinations for MATC students who are looking to earn their four-year degree,” said Jon Kuecken, director of the LU Madison Center. “We have a great, symbiotic relationship.”
One of the speakers at the conference was Mike Sitte, Lakeland’s senior director of instructional design. Sitte presented about Lakeland’s innovative BlendEd delivery system of education, which allows Evening, Weekend and Online students to attend class in person, watch and participate live via video stream or watch a video feed of the lecture later.
“Each year, the Flexible Learning Conference examines the direction of higher education, and looks at best practices and new technology,” Kuecken said. “One of our core competencies at Lakeland University is BlendEd, and we’re extremely proud of it.”
