Teaching with Technology Roundtable

Next week we are starting an exciting new project in conjunction with Faculty Development: the Teaching with Technology Roundtable. On Mondays at 1 pm for the next 5 weeks, we will cover a variety of topics related to incorporating technology into the classroom. We start off with Nov. 7 with GIS, then Blogs and RSS (that's me), Learning Objects, "A Teaching HomePage", and wrap up with Learning Management Systems on Dec. 5. There are facilitators and/or guest speakers at each one, but the intent is to have a discussion, not a lecture. Come by and see what's possible!

Teaching with Technology Roundtable

  1. Provide a place for faculty to discuss how they are using technology in the classroom as well as in their own work.
  2. Find out how faculty from local Universities are using technology in the classroom.
Time and Place:

Buley Library Connecticut Room, RM 205
