Creative Assignments with blogs, wikis, discussion boards, and Google Docs: TECHB@R workshop

When: Tuesday, February 23, – 4 p.m.
Where: TECHB@R Regenstein Library, Room 160
Description: Coming up with creative assignments that excite students and help them achieve learning goals can be a challenge. In this workshop, we will explore how to design creative assignments with technologies such as blogs, wikis, discussion tools, and Google Apps (Docs, Spreadsheet, Forms, Lucidchart, etc.) and foster collaborative learning during and between class meetings. We will consider the characteristics of these collaborative technologies, the type of assignments they are appropriate for and how to use them effectively. We will examine a few examples of effective use of these technologies and we will do a small group hands-on exercise to develop an assignment using one of these technologies. Bring your laptop or tablet for a taste in using technology for collaborative learning.

This course is open to all faculty, instructors, teaching assistants and graduate students.
