Lunch & Learn: Online Tools for Teaching Language and Culture

The next lunch & learn session on Friday, February 15 will feature Prof. Shannon Spasova from Russian Studies. This presentation will show examples of ways to use online tools for teaching language and culture but that can be applied in a variety of disciplines. Technologies showcased will include: screencasts, tablets, lesson authoring tools, wikis, voice tools, virtual worlds, and video conferencing.

The purpose of the Lunch & Learn is to give faculty who are teaching online, using the online environment as a component of their campus courses, or interested in moving some of their content online, an opportunity to come together in a sharing environment to learn about what other faculty members are doing and to hear about current research and best practices.

These will be very informal sessions facilitated by Adrienne Sehatzadeh, Instructional Designer/Solutions Researcher, eLearning Team, CLT. The sessions will be fashioned from input/feedback from attending faculty and staff. We will take part of the first meeting to map out a general plan.

Would you like to know how your colleagues are working in the online teaching environment? Are you using online tools in an innovative way that you would like to share? Are you curious about pedagogical approaches and best practices for the use of various tools in your online course? Then, you should benefit from this Lunch & Learn.
