Online and Blended Learning beyond infinity!

Ever thought about trying out a tech tool in your class or to facilitate a different kind of learning or assessment? This session will present some basic tech tools that you can use in your face-to-face classroom, your hybrid classroom or your online class. We will share some apps/mobile device items, online tools, and additional ideas that will help both faculty and students to be more engaged in the class assignments and activities. We will also have door prizes!

Turning a TMC (Transfer Model Curriculum) template into an AA-T or AS-T Degree proposal

If you are interested in using this time to focus on a TMC proposal, this workshop is for you. There are a number of TMC proposals that are available to develop into AA-T /AS-T Degrees. In order for that to happen the Curriculum Proposal (using CurricUNET) and the State Curriculum Application needs to be completed. This workshop will introduce those elements to get you started.

Making It Real: Integrating Reading Apprenticeship Strategies in Your Class

The Reading Apprenticeship (RA) framework helps students not only read for comprehension, but to develop as disciplinary thinkers and problem-solvers. Still, the process of changing the way that you teach can be extremely challenging. Bring a course text and get ready to work with colleagues to deepen the metacognitive conversation in your classroom. This workshop will be relevant and accessible to all, regardless of your prior experience with RA.

What are they really thinking?

Want to hear from more than those same few students every time you ask the class a question? Can't get everyone to raise their hands when you are polling the class? Frustrated trying to bring in the shy ones? This workshop will show you how to use an easy and free website to poll your students via their cell phones, laptops, or tablets and instantly show the results. It's fun, and they want to participate when you include this anonymous response tool . You'll be using it at your next class meeting!
