Empowering Faculty to Broaden Learning Boundaries: Making the Technology Transparent (Learning Technology)

Wednesday, January 21 | 2:30PM–3:30PM | Bonaire 7-8
Session Type: Professional Development
Join us to find out how we leveraged Apple's iTunes U program for a seamless capture of in-class enhanced podcasts, developed a one-click iTunes U course creation solution via Blackboard, and more. This presentation will focus on how to make the implementation of university-wide learning technologies transparent and nondisruptive to the teaching and learning process. Why? To assist faculty in expanding their teaching strategies for a more diverse student learning experience. We created a technological infrastructure that allows faculty, independent of their digital literacy skills, to make use of existing social and instructional technologies in and outside the classroom.
