Spring 2017 Teaching with Technology Forum – Discussion Panels

Teaching with Technology Forum FlyerThe Instructional Technology Services in IITS would like to invite you to this semester’s Teaching with Technology Forum.

Event: Teaching with Technology Forum
Date: Tuesday, May 9, 2017
Time: 9:00—10:30 a.m.
Location: Stokes 102

We will have three separate panels covering the topics below. After briefly describing their experience, panelists will engage with the audience in an open Q&A session.

Panel 1: Mobile Devices in the Classroom
(9:00—9:30 a.m.)

With increased interest in BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), faculty members at Haverford continue to incorporate the use of mobile devices and tablets in both assignments and presentations. Panelists will discuss how the use of these devices has enhanced their pedagogical approach.

Panelists:

  • Brook Lillehaugen, assistant professor of linguistics
  • Jennifer Lilgendahl, associate professor of psychology
  • Rachel Hoang, associate professor of biology
  • Roshan Jain, assistant professor of biology

Panel 2: Lecturing Outside the Classroom
(9:30—9:50 a.m.)

This semester, faculty members have used technology as a means of both “flipping” their classroom and lecturing remotely when they’re unable to make it to campus. Panopto and Zoom Video Conferencing, among other tools, can be used to deliver short form or longer lectures to your class. This often allows for further elaboration or discussion in the classroom. Panelists will discuss their experience with such technology.

Panelists:

  • Brook Lillehaugen, assistant professor of linguistics
  • Casey Londergan, associate professor of chemistry

Panel 3: Adopting Multimedia Assignments
(9:50 a.m.—10:30 a.m.)

Varying assignment types is a principle concept within the framework of Universal Design for Learning. Many faculty members have found that in offering a variety of assignments over the course of a semester, they are able to tap into different learning styles and increase engagement. Panelists will discuss the multimedia assignments that they offered this past semester and how students reacted to an alternate means of demonstrating learned concepts.

Panelists:

  • Erin Schoneveld, assistant professor of East Asian languages & cultures
  • Hank Glassman, Janet and Henry Ritchotte ’85 Professor of Asian Studies; associate professor of East Asian languages & cultures
  • Richard Freedman, professor of music; John C. Whitehead 1943 Professorship in the Humanities; associate provost for curricular development and support
  • Stephen Podowitz-Thomas, visiting assistant Professor of chemistry
  • Tetsuya Sato, director of Japanese language program

We hope you can join us!
