UCITE to host session on Academic Technology group

The Academic Technology group within Information Technology Services (ITS) is a team whose primary objective is to work with faculty members to redesign, adapt or create courses that accomplish the goals defined by the faculty associated with the course. Whether faculty members want to add new technology to their existing course or completely overhaul an existing course, members of the Academic Technology group can help in that process.

In addition, our team provides support of technology used in and outside of the classroom, including Blackboard, Google Apps, and Adobe Connect.

This UCITE session will highlight some of the capabilities of the team and will provide examples of recent efforts including the Active Learning Fellows program, Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs), the newly designed classrooms in Thwing and Bingham and the online degree programs within the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences and the Case School of Engineering. Additionally, we want your input on specific technology needed in our classrooms as we begin to plan for the next design of the instructor station.

Join us and bring your questions about areas you are considering changing or adapting for your course.

This discussion will be on Thursday, Sept. 11, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Herrick Room, on the ground floor of the Allen Building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid).

Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at this session. To help us estimate the amount to order, please let us know if you plan to attend this session by replying to this email or sending a message to ucite@case.edu
