Fostering Student Engagement with Free & Open Digital Tools
Wednesday, November 2; 1:00-2:30pm
Facilitator: Laurie Hurson (TLC)
Active learning and participation are two core components of student-centered pedagogy. Using free digital tools, instructors can develop activities and assignments that foster student engagement in the classroom and with course materials. During the workshop we will explore digital tools that cultivate engagement beyond the usual raise-your-hand and speak. Attendees will have time to try out different technologies and discuss how they might use the tools in their own course.
This workshop will be held on Zoom. Please register beforehand: https://gc-cuny-edu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZwkduCuqzMpHteV7-Azn9HewlY3AGXWpTrW
