Teaching with Technology Workshops

Here are some examples of teaching with technology workshops that the Center offers.

Best Practices in Teaching Online
This session is a facilitated conversation, based on Chickering and Gamson's "Seven Principles of Good Practice in Undergraduate Education" and focused on how to implement them in online teaching. Ideally, it is best scheduled for a departmental retreat or workshop for a group of faculty in the planning stages of launching an online program or developing individual online courses.
Duration: 90 minutes to a half day.

Integrating Technology into Student Assignments
This workshop is based on the premise that students can use technology to create content, rather than the faculty member always using technology to present content. Topics covered include: developing, structuring and grading assignments that require students to use a variety of technologies. Additionally, if requested, the workshop may cover some easy teaching tools, such as podcasts, wikis, blogs and other Web 2.0 technologies that can be used by a variety of disciplines.
Duration: 1 hour to half a day.

Interactive PowerPoint
This workshop focuses on ways PowerPoint can be used to support active learning and to make lectures more interactive. The session assumes participants will have a basic working knowledge of PowerPoint.
Duration: 60 minutes to half-day (if hands-on).

Snow Days, Sick Days, and Other Calamities
We all have those days when the weather or other unforeseen events make physically attending class a problem. This workshop helps faculty develop a plan for having content or modules ready to teach online if disaster strikes.
Duration: 1 to 2 hours.

Teaching with the iPad
This workshop features a basic introduction to the iPad and a brainstorming session for departments and groups of faculty to consider how they might incorporate the iPad into teaching. Typically, the workshop is offered for specific units or groups with common teaching interests, which allows facilitators to identify curriculum-specific apps.
Duration: 1-2 hours.

Teaching with Twitter and other Social Media Tools
More and more students are coming to class equipped with laptops, smart phones, and other mobile devices. This session examines strategies for using those tools to engage students in the classroom.
Duration: 1 to 2 hours.

Using Technology to Implement Chickering and Gamson's Seven Principles
A baseline workshop for new teachers. It combines the Seven Principles for Good Practice in Under Graduate Education with low threshold technologies that are easy to get started using.
Duration: 1 hour to half a day.
