Pedagogical Series

There are so many learning technologies available out there, but which ones are right for you and how do you use them effectively to ensure student learning outcomes are achieved? What are your fellow instructors around campus using to transform their courses?

This series includes:

  • Instructor-led sessions:
    Faculty share their experiences with a learning technology and the approach they took to provide students with a richer and more effective way of learning. Hear about their challenges, successes and tips on best practices!
  • Special events:
    These include community forums, or introductions to helpful templates and techniques you can leverage in your course design.

Each session will include an overview of tools, resources and support involved.

Come listen in and you may walk out with a few bright ideas of your own!

    (WEBINAR) Engaging Students Through Annotations – March 23, 2021

    Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm
    With educational technologies, the age old use of annotations takes on new dimensions. More specifically, the Collaborative Learning Annotation System (CLAS) allows students to comment directly on PDFs, reply to other comments and organize their observations, leading them to engage with textual materials in a more meaningful way. The Collaborate Ultra whiteboard provides a space for students to annotate documents in real time, allowing them to build on each other's knowledge to make new connections, together. This workshop will explore the pedagogical use of annotation tools such as CLAS and Collaborate Ultra whiteboard. Participants will leave the session with new ideas on how social annotation can benefit their classes.
