Innovative Uses of Technology in the Classroom

Facilitator(s): Bill Knapp (FCTL) and Gloria Lukusa-Barnett (University College and FerrisConnect Co-Project Manager)

PDI: $400

Description:

The members of this Faculty Learning Community will explore classroom technologies such as Sympodium, interactive whiteboards, document cameras, DVDs, student response systems, and other tools, and how they may be used in innovative ways to improve teaching and learning. Participants will commit to two hours per week in peer-led presentations and discussions considering the effective and innovative uses of various classroom technologies. Members will have an opportunity to practice with various technologies and will produce plans describing how they intend to implement such technologies into their own teaching.
