Meeting Logistics: Tue, 1 May 2007 at ATLAS 320
As the spring semester comes to a close, we look toward the summer as a time to reflect on the past year and consider what we could do better for the upcoming year. For this junto, let’s talk about helping faculty with this process in considering course redesign.
- Charlesworth, D. & McKinney, W.J. (2005). Pedagogical implications of technology: Toward a more critical stance of instructional technology. Issues in Information Systems. Vol. VI, No. 1: 121-126. Available at: http://www.iacis.org/iis/2005_IIS/PDFs/Charlesworth_McKinney.pdf.
- McCauley Jugovich, S, & Reeves, B. (2006). IT and educational technology: What’s pedagogy got to do with IT? EDUCAUSE Quarterly, No. 4: 58-60. Available at: http://www.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/EQM0649.pdf.
Questions for your consideration:
- How might we better promote ourselves to faculty as teachers of pedagogy and not just trainers of technology?
- As Laura brought up in the last junto, we’re beyond the issue of faculty adoption of technology. Subsequently, how do we encourage faculty to reconsider the way they teach, and possibly incorporate new technologies, to improve student learning?
- How can we help faculty learn to improve their teaching and adopt good practices?
- What can we do to motivate faculty to take advantage of faculty development/learning opportunities such as FTEP (Faculty Teaching Excellence Program) and other available CU resources?
