David Lam Building- Basement - Seminar Room
Facilitator(s): Michelle Lamberson
UBC faculty members have embraced the use of a wide range of technology-infused methods and tools to support their teaching and learning goals. WebCT, weblogs, wikis, a timeline tool, learning objects, clickers, simulations, games, e-portfolios, RSS... the list is extensive. Two common questions that most faculty have about these tools are: 1) Why would I use a particular tool or method? 2) Who can I go to for advice and support? This workshop will look at both of these questions. You will be introduced to a selection of the tools, including a chance to have some limited " hands - on " exploration. You will also have an opportunity to meet and discuss why faculty have chosen to use particular tools and techniques, and meet some of the staff who support faculty at UBC.
