Flipping the classroom

Facilitator: Elizabeth Royal

The flipped classroom, at its core, is an instructional model where students gain their first exposure to learning prior to class and focus on the processing and higher level thinking in class where they can be guided by the instructor. This workshop will help you learn the mechanics of flipping and work with you to strategize to present materials before class in ways that make sense and ensure that your students will do the work and come to class prepared.

Keeping up with what they know: integrating formative assessment in the classroom

Facilitator: Elizabeth Royal

Incorporating formative assessments into your teaching not only informs your instruction but it can improve student engagement and encourage critical reflection. This workshop will teach you assessment strategies that you can use right away in your classes and also help you coach your students to use the formative data to their advantage as well.

Class and room management

Facilitator: Elizabeth Royal

Every instructor and meeting facilitator has had a session where the room just got away. Before you knew it, you were out of time and you hadn’t even covered what was most important! Maybe participants didn’t listen or disregarded the instructions, the conversation collapsed or someone dominated the group discussion or no one wanted to speak at all. Fortunately, there are tried-and-true ways to handle all of these situations. This workshop teaches eight specific room management strategies to faculty and administrators to strengthen their facilitation skills. Whether you are managing a large lecture hall of students, a table of faculty working to come to consensus over an issue, or a small group of students you will find something that will make facilitating meetings and classes easier.

Working with media: creation, storage, and publication

Facilitator: Nathan Blume

Understanding how media files (images, video and audio) are stored and compressed can free up room on your hard drives, preserve and enhance their quality, and enable you to confidently prepare media for publication. Have you ever been told by a publisher that you needed to resubmit your artwork in a different format, been sent an image or movie you couldn't open, or wondered which settings to use on your digital camera? This workshop will give you the knowledge and skills to solve these dilemmas yourself, using only free tools.

Editing lecture captures with Camtasia and Office Mix

Facilitator: Anthony Cressey

Recording your lecture in advance can better prepare your students. In addition to that, we can use edited videos to share skills, present research, and document events. In this session, we will cover editing with Camtasia and Office Mix. Cropping, cutting, splicing, and adding effects are some essentials that can make for a polished product.

11:00 am – 11:45 am
