Hot Teams: Rapid Investigations of Emerging Technologies

Tuesday, October 02 | 4:20PM–4:40PM
Session Type: Professional Development

When a new technology emerges, we can only speculate about how it could be applied to teaching and learning. At Penn State, we have created the Hot Team process, which is a systematic exploration of a new technology or pedagogical approach. The goals of the Hot Team process are to get a small group of people up to speed with a new technology quickly and produce a tangible artifact that can help others understand it. We will explain the Hot Team process, give some examples, and discuss how it can be implemented.
