Add item to your planner: Scheduled Event: Workshop 1 : Get Outside Your LMS! Engagement Strategies for Online Instruction
April 7, 2020
10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Online learning is continuing to grow at a rapid rate, yet the pedagogy used in digital learning environments continues to be critiqued due to its lack of student engagement, collaborative activities, and innovative teaching methods. With new educational technologies being released on a regular basis, this workshop will demonstrate multiple strategies for using those technologies at no monetary cost to engage students in both course content and collaborative activities. Specifically, this workshop will feature a mini-course on Design Thinking that was created using the “Own It, Learn It, Share It” and “E-Learning Engagement Design” frameworks, and the workshop is organized so that the frameworks are first introduced, analyzed, and then discussed. Next, attendees will have guided opportunities to explore the course and the strategies used to integrate the content, technologies, and activities together, so they promote student engagement and collaboration. Time will be reserved for attendees to interact with the activities, analyze the course design, and share. The workshop will conclude by offering best practices for supporting students in completing the activities as well as resources for locating new educational technologies. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptops to the workshop. <a href="">link text</a>
