Speed Dating with Learning Technologies at Indiana University

Wednesday, February 20 | 10:00AM–10:45AM PT | Pacific Promenade - Poster15
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
Faculty have limited time yet want to learn about technologies to engage students and enhance teaching and learning. To address this need, and as an alternative to a traditional workshop, we developed Speed Dating with Learning Technologies, a fast-paced, highly interactive event where faculty are introduced to, and can ask questions about, a variety of learning technologies. By the end of the session, faculty "dated" 8–10 technologies and had a lot of fun in the process. Join us to learn how to host a speed-dating event on your own campus and for access to materials to help get you started.

Outcomes: Identify key components in creating a successful faculty development event in a nontraditional format* Design a speed-dating-with-technology event for your institution* Apply lessons learned from IU's speed-dating event to develop new approaches to faculty development
