UNF's Deb Miller to speak on JBJ’s ‘The Connected Classroom’ panel today

Dr. Deb Miller, assistant vice president for Digital Learning and Innovation, is a featured speaker on a panel of local educational leaders for the upcoming event, “The Connected Classroom.” Hosted by the Jacksonville Business Journal, this virtual webinar takes place on Thursday, May 6 from 11 a.m. to noon.

From elementary to post-graduate learning, all educational institutions are continually reinventing the way they utilize technology to teach, connect and engage with students, staff and partners. This live webinar will discuss how educators are modifying their instructional strategies to continue to be innovative and cutting edge while teaching in multiple modalities, how they are handling the demand for cloud-based communications, and ways they are continuing to help keep students of all ages in Northeast Florida academically advanced and ready for future success.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has presented new challenges for educators to overcome, this discussion is not solely focused on the past year of events. The webinar aims to share what new technologies or implementations are possible to keep Northeast Florida schools, and this critical industry as whole, ahead of the curve.

Dr. Miller provides leadership for digital learning policy, practice and strategy at UNF. She oversees the Center for Instruction & Research Technology (CIRT) andUNF Online, and partners with other campus units on textbook affordability initiatives. She remains a teacher at heart and is a part-time instructor in the College of Education and Human Services. Miller also works with campus stakeholders to investigate new digital learning technologies and facilitate the adoption of appropriate tools. 

Miller is an alumna of UNF, earning her doctorate in Educational Leadership and M.Ed. in Instructional Technology. She is also an OLC certified Online Instructor.
