When: Tuesday, May 29 at noon (PST)
Who: Valia Spiliotopoulos, Patric Lougheed, and Scott Gerrity
What: The development team involved in the Case Studies in Innovative Technology Use Website will discuss the process for creating this excellent resource and how it is being used.
This presentation will discuss the rationale, importance, and implementation of this open webresource that profiles faculty’s innovative use of educational technology to promote student learning. The development of this resource was instigated by the need to highlight and support faculty-led approaches towards innovation in education by showcasing them and their work using a case-studies approach. The resource includes videotaped interviews of faculty across BC’s higher education community who answer key questions related to learning and teaching with technology by offering best practice guidelines, tips, and solutions to common educational technology problems. The site also includes some videos/snapshots or ‘captures’ of exemplar courses and accompanying sample learning materials (i.e. links to concept mapping tools, sample questions or online assignments) that will help other instructors adapt, conceptualize and apply strategies and best practices in their own courses and contexts. In addition to teasing out some of the common themes and advice shared by faculty, the presentation will offer strategies for using the site to support and promote innovation amongst faculty in various institutions.
