End Date: 3/29/2013End Time: 12:00 PM

Event Description
Knowledge may have once been housed primarily in universities but the advent of technology (starting with the printing press and advancing through the Khan Academy and MOOCs) has made knowledge widely available.

Learning in the 21st Century means more than being exposed to content: learning involves changing the way a person thinks. And learning can be facilitated effective deployment of technology. Technology can be used during all three times a student can learn: before class, during class, and after class.

Whether ‘class’ means face-to-face or an online lesson the concept of ‘before, during, and after’ can help educators rethink their role in the learning process. Screencasts and other instructor-created multimedia presentations can introduce students to information before they arrive in a face-to-face classroom.

The prepared learner arrives at in class (or at an interactive online session) armed with enough knowledge to work at higher cognitive levels such as application, analysis, and synthesis. The cognitive F2F activities should actively engage students so they can construct meaning about the content.

he time when a student most needs the teacher is when he or she begins using knowledge to help address questions related to the course content. Technology can be employed to help students spend more time on task after class by encouraging them to complete online activities.

The pedagogical notion that students construct knowledge aligns with what is currently known about the neurobiology of learning. In this workshop we will examine some of the technology that facilitates learning outside of class such as screen-casting, online quizzes, collaborative online tools, multimedia activities, and technology for students to create new learning.

We will also explore the types of active learning possible in the newly liberated face-to-face time such as clickers and white boards. If you are interested in exploring ways to help students learn more using technology then this workshop is for you!

After the workshop, participants will be able to:
  • reflect on their own teaching practices to identify better methods for helping students to learn
  •  explain the major types of design for college courses
  • explain multiple types of technology being used in higher education
