Thursday, August 21st, 2014
1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Instructors are increasingly required to develop novel technological strategies for teaching within and outside face-to-face classrooms. In this Teaching with Technology workshop, designed and presented by the Liberman Fellows, participants will receive an introduction to a variety of technological tools they can incorporate to foster active learning across a range of classroom settings: face-to-face, blended, and online. Promoting student engagement, discussions, and collaboration requires addressing unique challenges in each of these settings. Workshop participants will learn to identify these challenges in different teaching environments and be introduced to tools that can be used to address them flexibly and effectively. All tools introduced can be utilized in a variety of classroom settings, and some may be especially helpful in contexts where face-to-face interaction is limited. Tools featured include but are not limited to:
