Description:

Ready to blend your course but not sure how to pick the best technology? This session builds on the blended learning workshop (DigPed 001) to help participants align a particular overarching goal (for example: creating a class culture that supports safe and open discussion of controversial subjects) to specific technologies and strategies for their use. The session is highly customized to participants’ interests, and participants will gain hands-on experience with a supported technology. Together, the group will become familiar with additional pedagogical support options on campus and will engage in reflection and discussion with colleagues.
