Fall 2016 Workshops

September 28th, 2016

  • Image preview 3:30pm - 5:00pm: EdTech Series - Audience Response Systems
    Traditionally associated with large lecture halls, the next generation of BYOD (bring your own device) audience response systems open doors for classes of all sizes. We’ll look at three tools: Poll Everywhere, PearDeck, and Tophat, all of which allow audiences to use their own devices to engage with your presentation. There will also be some discussion on how to assess the valuable data these systems are capable of collecting.

  • Image preview 3:30pm - 5:00pm: EdTech Series - Backups & Security
    If your project files, lecture notes, or any other vital data live only on your local computer, you are one hard drive crash away from losing it all. In this workshop we’ll discuss what you should be backing up and then review software options for both Macs and PCs to help you manage backups. With your files backed up you’ll barely bat an eye when your hard drive crashes.

    Mobile devices and social networks have become powerfully pervasive tools in our personal lives. They can also be equally powerful tools for classroom engagement and collaborative learning.
