First We Show Them the Toaster

Wednesday, March 13 | 2:50PM–3:40PM | West Prefunction Area
Session Type: NC13
What do an electric toaster, a movie trailer, and a card game have to do with IT? How do these disparate items find their way into a discussion of teaching and technology? Touching on subjects from writing technical manuals to dealing with the untimely death of a project manager, we will deliver a humorous, focused, and simple strategy for developing engaging and successful course content using modern digital tools and some old-fashioned cognitive strategies. This presentation will provide a valuable roadmap for course design in the fast-changing landscape that is information technology in the 21st century.
