Outdated Technology Tools and What To Use Instead

Are you tired of using the same old tech tools from year to year? If you are still using a transparency projector, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, plain emails, and whiteboard lecture notes, attend this workshop!

Participatory Learning:  Deeper Learning by Engaging Students in the Entire Problem Lifecycle

We’ve been using a new approach in some courses for students to learn more deeply.  Participatory Learning (PL) actively engages them in the full lifecycle of homework, projects and exams. In this session we’ll briefly introduce PL and give a quick demo, explore with you how it might work in your classes with the types of problems your students do, and discuss several interesting issues that arise such as students’ ability to design high-quality problems and grade accurately, motivating students to learn, and trusting peers.

Create a Classroom Community: Connecting with Students Through Twitter Chats

This session will discuss using Twitter as a tool for synchronous chat with students outside of the classroom. Students who feel more connected to their instructors and classmates are more successful. Twitter also helps to prepare students for communicating in different discourse communities and public accountability.
