Teaching with Technology (Jan 3 - 14, 2022)
Whether this is your first year teaching, or you’ve taught for many years, this course may be for you. Teaching with Technology will be highlighting ways to refresh and realign courses using pedagogical strategies and technology tools that can be applied to face to face, online, or hybrid courses.
This two-week, online session is designed to unpack some of the strategies and techniques for teaching and learning and reflect on doing a small or large course redesign as a result. This course has both asynchronous and optional synchronous components. Faculty and instructors will explore methods to assist in developing course learning objectives, creating relevant learning activities, and designing authentic assessments, while fostering inclusion, equity, and global citizenship.
Participants will experiment with various kinds of technology and experience some of the activities and assessments that could be incorporated into a course redesign. They will have the opportunity to develop practical skills using digital tools such as Padlet and Hypothes.is for digital annotation and collaboration, google forms and quizzes for assessment, and forums, podcasts, and domains for discussion and reflection. Moodle resources, polling, virtual labs, and open educational resources (OER) will also be examined. These strategies and tools can be integrated into courses right away.
