Summer Faculty Institute 2017
Design Thinking, iPads, Online Teaching Reflections, and Active Learning Classrooms - Oh My!
Join your faculty peers, IT&D, and Geisel Library for this year's exciting faculty institute. The institute is open to all faculty. Attend for a few hours, or a few days:
Tuesday, May 16th
10-10:45 a.m., Cognitive Psychology Students Re-imagine Services and Spaces
Kathleen Flannery, Ph.D., Psychology
Cognitive psychology students worked in teams of four using design thinking methodology to re-imagine spaces for engaged learning, namely, the Weiler Computer Laboratory. Course content with respect to theory, concepts, and research was purposively linked to the team projects on a weekly basis. Informal feedback suggests students valued this learning experience noting gains in creative confidence, mastery of course material, and willingness to take risks for greater gains.
11-11:45 a.m., Two Years Online: What We’ve Learned
Andrew Moore, Ph.D., Director of Summer School and Kim Round, Ph.D., Director of Instructional Technology
Over the past two years, Saint Anselm has run pilot online summer and winter courses. In the process, much feedback has been gathered and will be leveraged as the college embarks on fully endorsed summer and winter online semesters. We will share reflections, progress and plans for the future.
12-1:15 p.m., Lunch - Instructional Technology & Design Next Steps
Kim Round, Ph.D., Director of Instructional Technology
During SFI ‘13, faculty envisioned the next four years of innovation, supported by IT&D. IT&D has achieved many of these objectives and is ready to plan the next four years. Join us for a brainstorming lunch, where we discuss how faculty envisions future pedagogical advances and how IT&D can help.
1:30-2:15 p.m., Innovations in Spanish 310 Online
Beth Fouts, Ph.D., Modern Languages
Utilizing many online resources such as online videos, audio exercises and Voice Thread activities, students were able to listen to a variety of accents and regional differences while recording themselves answering questions, commenting to their peers and creating presentations via Voice Thread.
2:30-3:15 p.m., Releasing the iPad Genie
Bede Benjamin Bidlack, Ph.D., Theology
This presentation will demonstrate the power of teaching with iPad apps that professors can use in a wide variety of learning designs. In addition, there will also be one demonstration of an app particular to a specific learning design. The apps are Keynote, Safari, Goodnotes, iAnnotate and Cosmic Eye.
Wednesday, May 17th
10-10:45 a.m., Learning with Simulations in the Classroom
Nicole Gugliucci, Ph.D., Physics
I will demonstrate two ways that simulations have been used in the active learning classrooms, both in an introductory science class for education majors using iPads and in an astronomy laboratory for cloudy nights when the telescopes were unavailable. We’ll explore some challenges and rewards for using simulations to explore atoms, crash galaxies together, and study rabbit populations over decades
11-11:45 p.m., Overcoming the Tech Hurdle: Bringing Physics Online
David Guerra, Ph.D., Physics
Teaching this course in an online format presented several challenges, namely how to simulate the recitation experience of working on homework type problems with students in an asynchronous-remote scenario, how to have students “do” labs and not just passively watch a laboratory video, and how to give students the opportunity to experience on-ground type problem based assessments with standard feedback. During the presentation, I will discuss how I worked with the Instructional Design team to solve these challenges
12-1:15 p.m., Lunch – Sharing Information Visually with Google Apps for Education
Kim Round, Ph.D., Director of Instructional Technology
Enjoy lunch as we discuss the various technology tools available for faculty to leverage in pursuit of interdisciplinary and/or collaborative teaching.
1:30-2:15 p.m., Geisel Guides as a Tool for Student Content Creation
Melinda Malik, Head of Reference - Geisel Library
Are you looking for an alternative to assigning the traditional research paper? Join us for an introduction to how your students may use Geisel Guides’ software as a tool for creating dynamic learning objects and demonstrate knowledge creation.
2:30-3:15 p.m., Information Has Value: Ethical Considerations of Interdisciplinary Information Literacy
Melinda Malik, Head of Reference - Geisel Library
A facilitated discussion of how to use broader information literacy concepts to help students unpack ethical issues associated with the creation and use of information.
Instructional Technology and Design offers a range of technology workshops for Saint Anselm faculty and staff. The workshops aim to address the most commonly encountered technology issues in teaching and learning. Workshops are announced via email.
Some of our past workshops include:
Spend the day with us, right before the semester starts, to build or refresh your Sakai skills. We’ll also discuss popular integrations such as Google Apps, VoiceThread, and Turnitin.
Ready to take the next step? Join us for an advanced take on Saint Anselm's learning management system.
Building More Effective Presentations without PowerPoint
Tired of the same old boring PowerPoint presentations? Prezi is a dynamic presentation tool, which will have students wondering where they'll go next!
Using Mobile Devices in the Classroom
Have you seen the new Apple TV devices in selected classrooms? Want to know what they are and how to use them? Come join us for an interactive workshop where you'll learn how you and your students can share iPad, iPhone, and iPod applications with each other on the big screen!
Flipped Classroom Pedagogy
Are you interested in flipping your classroom, but aren't sure how? Still don't know what a flipped classroom is? This workshop will help you take the first step by explaining how to flip a lesson.
On the Tech Horizon
What's new and exciting in the world of teaching and technology? This workshop will feature a few new apps and technologies coming down the line that we think will be helpful in your classroom.
Instructional technology strives to keep faculty informed of various technology tools, as well as best practices of their use. Rather than listing the same tutorials and resources in multiple locations, we've moved all of the tutorials to one central location, which can be found here: IT&D Resources Online. This page is constantly being updated, so please check back often for new tutorials. If you have any questions, please contact us at HelpDesk@Anselm.Edu.
