The IITS presents the Teaching with Technology Forum: Enhancing Pedagogy through Instructional Technology in Stokes Auditorium. This forum is free and open to the public.
Faculty Presentations 1:30pm~3:30pm
Joshua Schrier (Chemistry)
Joshua Schrier has completely flipped one of his classes, Chemistry 305 this semester. He has been using a LiveScribe pen to create pencasts, which he puts on Moodle. Students are asked to view the pencasts before the class. During the class, they work on problems. The feedback from his students has been positive. It is more work on his part, but he thinks it is worthwhile, as they get to spend the entire class period working on problems which increases his ability to interact with students on a 1-1 basis. It has also greatly improved students work on problem sets, since they are essentially working on it together and they can ask him questions at an earlier stage.
At this presentation, he will share what he has learned from this experience, feedback from his students, and plans for the next semester.
iPads in Teaching
Maud McInerney (English), Zachary Oberfield (Political Science), Rob Scarrow (Chemistry), Richard Freedman (Music).
You may have seen our video showcasing Maud McInerney using an iPad to share images during class and grade her student work outside of class. Maud McInerney was among several faculty members awarded a Tablets in Teaching grant to see how this technology can enhance pedagogy. She will join fellow recipients Zachary Oberfield, Rob Scarrow and Richard Freedman in this panel discussion on their experience teaching with iPads.
Improving Student Presentation Skills Using Panopto and Swivl
Curtis Greene (Mathematics), David Lippel (Mathematics)
Various professors have been using Panopto, our lecture capture system to capture their lectures so that their students can review them later. The Math department has started using Panopto for their senior seminar to record students’ presentations. Since it is important for the Math department to use chalk and blackboard, they have been using Swivl, a personal cameraman, to follow the presenter and record the presentation. In this presentation, Curtis Greene and David Lippel will share what they have learned from their experience using Panopto and Swivl and share the feedback from their students and colleagues.
