With the multitude of educational technology options available, it’s not easy to decide which to use and when.
Derek Bruff, Director of the Vanderbilt University Center for Teaching, argues that it should be our teaching and learning goals that drive our choice of technology, NOT the other way around. In “Intentional Tech”, Bruff provides 7 research-based principles for matching technology to pedagogy and expands on each principle by providing examples of implementation from real faculty.
We’ll meet via Zoom 3 times: Thursday, Jan 21; Tuesday, Feb 16; and Thursday, Mar 11 at 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM EST. In order to best facilitate a lively discussion, we are capping enrollment to 20.
