10:00am-10:50am | Breakout Sessions

Pedagogical Warmup: Bringing Active Learning into Lectures

In most class meetings, students need both lecture from faculty and opportunities for active learning. In this session, workshop participants will develop a strategy for deciding which to do when... and sharpen skills so we do both well.

Use of Instructional Technologies and Multimedia Tools: Course Site: Assignments Boot Camp

This session will be primarily focused on how to use one of the growing-number of assignment tools available in Course Site including Google’s Course Kit, Turnitin, and the built-in Assignment activities. We will explore the basics of how each activity works, discuss the pros and cons of each, and share what we know from many other faculty who have shared information with us regarding their experiences with each. The goal will be to have each attendee leave with a sense of at least one approach that will improve their teaching and reduce as much overhead as possible.

Tour of CITL Spaces

There are several innovative spaces throughout the EWFM Library and Computing Center where we will be giving tours to show these spaces and what services are offered. Available tours during this session:

  • Digital Media Studio (DMS)
  • Visualization Lab (EWFM 370D)
  • Data Center (EWFM CC)

Teaching Online: Student Assessment and Engagement

Teaching online presents challenges and opportunities when it comes to creating assessments and activities that align with the learning objectives for your course.  Join us for a discussion around approaches and tools that you can use in the online learning environment and consider which are best suited for your course and students.

Open Educational Resources

As higher ed moves to tackle the rising cost of textbooks, Open Educational Resources (OERs) are an increasingly popular alternative to textbooks. Join us to learn more about where to find OERs, how to use them, and Lehigh’s resources for supporting OER use. Whether you’re looking to replace an intro textbook or need flexible content for advanced courses, there are options to get class resources into the hands of every student

11:00am-Noon | Breakout Sessions

Pedagogical Warmup: Fine Tuning our Writing Assignments

Effective writing assignments foster student engagement, promote deep learning, and facilitate effective and efficient feedback and grading. This hands-on workshop will explore the components of effective writing assignments with special attention to improving your own assignments for your current and future courses

Instructional Technologies and Multimedia Tools: Classroom Use of Drones, 360 Imagery, Mobile VR, and Data Visualization

Join us in the Visualization Lab as we demonstrate how faculty have designed assignments that allow students to use virtual reality, drones, 360 images, and data to visually present their research.

Tour of CITL Spaces

There are several innovative spaces throughout the EWFM Library and Computing Center where we will be giving tours to show these spaces and what services are offered. Available tours during this session:

  • Digital Media Studio (DMS)
  • One Button Studio (EWFM 522)
  • Data Center (EWFM CC)

Teaching Online: Faculty Panel Discussion -  Best Practices and Lessons Learned

Whether you’ve taught online, are preparing to teach online or would like to use the online environment for portions of your F2F course, join colleagues that have taught online for a discussion of their experiences.  What  practices have worked, what are the struggles, and how can we improve?

Community-Engaged Teaching & Learning

This workshop is intended to support faculty in creating an engaged learning/teaching environment by integrating high-impact learning practices into the design of new or revised courses and in assessing those practices.  It will bring together faculty to engage in complex discussions and workshops about aspects of community engagement, service-learning, and ethics.  Participants will leave with examples of high-quality, reciprocal, ethical community engagement and ideas for future incorporation into their teaching.

Teaching Online: Developing and Structuring Your Online Course

Thinking about the content that makes up your online course and how your students progress?  Join us to discuss types of content you can include in the online environment, how to create and manage this content, and strategies for guiding students through course material and activities to help them be successful online learners.

Using Google tools with Moodle - Google’s new CourseKit

Google has created a tool called CourseKit, that embeds Docs and Drive in Course Site, allowing students and teachers to more seamlessly integrate Google’s popular productivity apps with Lehigh's LMS. With the assignment tool, instructors can collect assignments through Google Doc and Drive within the Course Site. Instructors will also have new cloud-based capabilities all within their browser. Additionally, it provides for the ability to toggle between assignments, work entirely in the LMS without having to download or upload documents and can give grades and add comments in the margins. All students’ submissions will automatically be organized in Drive.
