DigPed 001: Blended Learning: Teaching with Technology More Purposefully

Date, Time, & Location: Tuesday, February 6, 2018, 1-2:30pm, Collaborative Classroom, Room 113, Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center

Description: Join us for the first of a three-part series on blended learning. Participants will learn strategies to purposefully balance online and face-to-face instruction by applying the principles of backward design and the blended learning models. Using overarching course goals as a starting point, participants will begin defining the application of blended learning principles to their unique context. Before attending the workshop, participants will be asked to complete a brief introductory tutorial on blended learning in Canvas.
 

DigPed 002: Mixing It Up with Tech: Turning a Course Activity into a Blended Learning Experience

Date, Time, & Location: Tuesday, February 20, 2018, 1-2:30pm, Collaborative Classroom, Room 113, Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center

DescriptionReady to blend your course but not sure how to pick the best technology? This session builds on the Blended Learning workshop (DigPed 001) to help participants align a particular overarching goal (for example, creating a class culture that supports safe and open discussion of controversial subjects) to specific technologies and strategies for their use. The session is highly customized to participants' interests. Based on individual results from a pre-workshop activity, participants will gain hands-on experience with a supported technology. Together the group will become familiar with additional pedagogical support options on campus, and engage in reflection and discussion with colleagues.
 

DigPed 003: Leveraging Classroom Spaces for Active, Collaborative Learning

Date, Time, & Location: Monday, March 12, 2018, 9-10:30am, Collaborative Classroom, Room 113, Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center

DescriptionJoin us for the final workshop in the three-part series on Blended Learning. In this hands-on session, participants will discover how to leverage the basic elements of any classroom (walls, boards, desks, tables, projectors, etc.) to create an active, collaborative learning experience for students. After building a foundation of learning spaces and in-class student collaboration techniques, participants will brainstorm, design and teach classroom an activity in the VanPelt-Dietrich Library's Collaborative Classroom. Through discussion and reflection, participants will offer and receive feedback to help them integrate technology and physical teaching spaces purposefully to best meet their lesson goal(s).
