Our 1st meeting with the group…CELT mission and info about the center and what we do. Introductions
We tried to model active learning techniques in the workshops we provided. The conversation cards were using a technique called think-pair-share, which we often discuss in our work with faculty.
Chris gave the group a rundown of different technologies he and other faculty members are using in their classrooms to get them thinking about traditional assignments in new ways.He discussed blogs, wikis, social media (twitter, facebook, instagram, social bookmarking like Pinterest, diigo), and Google Tools.
Gail shared 3 syllabi from her courses for them to see examples and went over them with the group…Kathryn and Gail worked individually with each faculty member to develop their learning objectives, course outcomes, etc.
New York Times ArticleHow would we each use this in our class? Everyone gave examples and it turned into an amazing history/cultural lesson about Pakistan.
The article then allowed for a simulation.
To further develop the idea of project-based-learning we had a workshop on different ways to think about incorporating video and multimedia assignments into the classroom.Video assignments are a good way to engage/motivate students, allows for various learning styles, and students get technology exposure.
HEC limits what they can do. They only have control over 20-25% of their assignments
