Various types of technology can help you meet your teaching goals. Electronic files allow easy updating and distribution in different environments, both in the classroom and online.
Provide your course materials and garner student interaction online
Use a supplemental course website to distribute course materials to students, collect, student work, and engage students in collaborative activities. Other mechanisms for distribution include e-reserves from the library, advance preparation of a CD, or development of a course website on a UW or external server.
Enhance class lectures and materials with visual and audio materials
Use presentation software such as PowerPoint, or set up web pages to show in class and post online. In the classroom, use a document camera for projecting objects and artifacts, including handwriting. Prepare electronic images with advanced digital editing techniques.
Encourage student interaction in the classroom and obtain feedback on student learning
Employ discussion as a teaching tool in the largest classrooms using a clicker response system, PollEverywhere, or an supplemental course website to obtain immediate answers to questions you ask in class. Project a tabulation of student answers to stimulate discussion, and examine results and statistics later. Type or write student contributions during class discussions by way of a projected computer or document camera. Use a document camera to project student work to use as a basis for problem-solving in class. Extend discussion beyond the classroom with online discussions, blogs, Wikis, e-mail, instant messaging, and videoconferencing.
Invite guest professionals to participate in your class
Record presentations for later review or archival purposes, or pre-record for students.
In collaboration with the Outreach School, we are offering open lab hours Friday 1-3 p.m., Coe Library Room 510, for personal hands on assistance with use of technologies for teaching.
