Would you like to learn new ways to use educational technologies from your colleagues? Please join us as three talented instructors share their experiences using a variety of technologies to engage students in their courses. Students nominated 48 different faculty this year – a record number – to be honored for their work.
”Engaging Students in the Live Online Classroom”
Dr. Dale Grote, Languages and Culture Studies, uses Centra, the University’s Web conferencing system, to hold live classes. He takes advantage of tools like whiteboard, breakout rooms and chat to keep his students actively participating.
“Promoting Interaction in Asynchronous Online Courses”
Caryl Gordon, American Studies, will demonstrate that using Moodle’s Forum activity encourages all students to participate in the discussion. She will also exhibit how prompt feedback for both assignments and forum posts can help students integrate your constructive criticism into their future submissions.
“Social Media and Writing in the Higher Ed Classroom”
Justin Cary, First-Year Writing,will show you some very exciting and easy ways to use social media such as Facebook and Twitter, plus some visual design tools such as Infographics, Wix.com, VoiceThread and more, to help students transform essays and writings into something very special.
