2010 Summer Institute: Increasing Student Engagement and Creating Learning Communities Using Web 2.0 Tools
Have you ever wished that your classroom was more of an intellectual
community? Have you been amazed at the social communities that your students
participated in using internet tools and wondered if they might be helpful
in the classroom? Have you been amazed at how students, and perhaps
colleagues, have used video and YouTube to create engaging assignments? Have
you ever wished to have additional tools in your pedagogical toolbox with
examples of best practice in different disciplinary settings? In this five
day institute, facilitated by Prof. Randy Bass of Georgetown University
http://cndls.georgetown.edu/ , participants will have an opportunity to
explore these questions, learn certain Web 2.0 tools, practice with video as
a means to make thinking visible and within a supportive learning community
of colleagues develop new strategies for developing learning communities
within their classrooms.
Monday, May 10, 2010 - Friday, May 14, 2010 from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm.
The institute will be held in ATLAS Room 200.
