Using Technology to Facilitate Instruction

Registered participants will participate in two consecutive, half-day faculty development workshops on Tuesday, May 28 and Wednesday, May 29 from 1-3:30pm.  The workshop is sponsored by the Information Technology Services and Office of the Associate Provost.  Individuals who plan to use technology as a part of their instructional practices should plan to attend.  The goal of technology use is to achieve better outcomes using convenient processes.  Through this hands-on workshop, you will integrate simple and readily available technologies to achieve outcomes in your course. You will also have opportunities to focus on improving communication, instructional facilitation, and management.  Please bring ideas with you about what goals as an instructor would you like to achieve?  And, what outcomes you would like to achieve through the technologies integrated?

Participants will develop course design concepts including technology integration; determine how to leverage technology to support student success in reaching course and program outcomes by: (a) using technology to keep students informed, (b) using technology to support student responsibility and accountability, and (c) using technology to provide students with feedback when and where they need it; and experience the promotion of digital literacy in their discipline.

If you are planning on attending, please let Sandra Harris (sandra.harris@drake.edu) know by April 16, 2019.

Participants not on a 12-month contract will receive a stipend.  We have a limited budget for this workshop, so the exact amount of the stipend will depend upon the number of participants eligible for the stipend. This stipend will not exceed $75 per person. An afternoon snack will be provided.
