Teaching With Technology
A webinar with Scott Jaschik and Carl Straumsheim of Inside Higher Ed
Discussion to follow
Tuesday, February 17, 2015, 2:00-3:30
Pelletier Collaboratory

Allegheny faculty and staff are invited to join a webinar and discussion on teaching with technology on Tuesday, February 17 from 2:00-3:30 in the Pelletier Collaboratory. The use of technology to deliver instruction is increasingly widespread – though the extent of its use varies greatly. At some institutions, professors do little more than use learning management systems (LMS) to record attendance and grades and to communicate with students. At the other end of the scale, millions of students study entirely online. For the great middle, though, professors are increasingly using their LMS and other technology tools to do things that don’t simply replace paperwork. They are bringing together students from across the country or around the world. They are “flipping the classroom” and using class time for group work or student presentations, rather than for lecture. They are using simulations, videos and an ever-growing list of tools. And they are doing so in courses that are entirely online, entirely in person and in hybrid formats.

Participants, and those unable to attend, are also welcome to review a compilation of articles and opinion pieces on this subject that have been published in Inside Higher Ed. That compilation can be found here: https://www.insidehighered.com/content/teaching-technology
