It was great to touch base with those of you who were free today. For those of you who couldn’t make it, we generated a list of possible topics to explore together, including:
- how we have used technology in our classrooms – successes and failures and things we know now that we wish we knew then
- the relationship between technology and learning
- the relationship between technology and participation
- disciplinary views/uses of technology – maybe a set of readings?
- using technology to produce, measure and analyze data – both programs for and conceptual/theoretical implications of
- how to teach students to use tech
- navigating learning management systems for course construction
- supporting each other through the GTC+ certificate process
- strategies for collaboration with peers and across institutions
- Michigan resources for technology
- analyzing platforms for pedagogical “fit”
- learning about Letech for dissertation formatting
- programs for archiving your graduate career
- analog technologies and when they are he better choice
So! Lots of ideas!
Our next Meeting is at Ashley’s on February 25th, where we will plan for a teaching with tech show-and-tell on March 21st and sort out the logistics of Jonathan Alexander‘s visit. We have room to invite 3 graduate students to have dinner with him after his talk on March 10, so let us know if you are interested.
