I am pleased to share a professional development opportunity, Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age. This interactive course is hosted by NASPA and can be completed at your own pace. Please find more information below!
This session will explore how faculty and administrators can engage with technologically savvy college students, who want to learn and seek out technology. Various tools and platforms exist for classroom content such as Blackboard and Canvas, which can be used to enhance teaching and learning, beyond strictly online course offerings. Further, there are free social media tools available that faculty can experiment with for higher levels of student engagement. Examples will be shared from simple uses of technology in the classroom to innovative campus initiatives, bridging technology to learning. Finally, tech resources will be presented for faculty to become more digitally connected as a scholar. The full course description is available here.
