PLEASE NOTE: Separate registration and fee are required to attend this seminar.
Tuesday, February 24 | 9:15AM–12:30PM | Conference Center C Room
Session Type: Professional Development
Today's students, shaped by a lifetime of technological innovation, are increasingly different from the faculty who will teach them. How can we leverage today's technologiesÃ‚â€”from wikis and blogs to social networks and cyberinfrastructureÃ‚â€”to better serve their needs? In this interactive workshop, we'll use the student voice and our own knowledge of learning and learning technologies to construct a blueprint of what the future might look like. Can we create borderless classrooms where students work together to solve complex problems? Are there opportunities for knowledge sharing inside a lecture? How can we teach critical thinking? Together, we'll build new models for learning that test these questions and stimulate our imaginations.
