UCITE session: “Active Learning and Collaboration with Mobile Technology”

Mobile technologies (smart phones, tablets, wearables, etc.) are becoming ever present in our lives. While students may rely heavily on mobile technologies to manage their personal lives, they may not think about how to incorporate them effectively into their learning. CWRU is exploring ways to enhance the student experience through mobile technology use in learning spaces.

Faculty can learn more about how to incorporate mobile technology in their teaching at the next University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE) session Thursday, Sept. 27, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Allen Memorial Medical Library’s Ford Auditorium.

University Technology Teaching and Learning Technologies team members Cheryl Knight and Tina Oestreich will present on the opportunities for faculty that exist in this realm during this session, titled “Active Learning and Collaboration with Mobile Technology.”

Their talk will address how iPads and screen sharing can help increase student collaboration during lectures and discuss the opportunity to participate in an iPad Active Learning pilot in Spring 2019.

A pizza lunch will be provided during the session. RSVP to
