(Author’s note: This is the first in a series about the faculty demostrations scheduled for K-State’s technology showcase March 13. Information is excerpted from the complete list of faculty demonstrations on the ksushowcase.wordpress.com website.)
The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Showcase is 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, in the K-State Student Union Ballroom. All faculty/staff are invited to attend and see demos, visit with vendors, and win prizes. Pre-registration is required at ksushowcase.wordpress.com/registration and closes March 9.
“Online teaching and learning” is a popular theme evidenced by these faculty demonstrations scheduled for the technology showcase.
The Real World: Real Experiences Through Online Learning — What’s the difference between distance education and “real” classes? See demos of assignments that engage distance students in learning “where the rubber meets the road,” or, where life really counts. Enhance communication through “off-road” technology such as instant messaging, flip cams, and videoconferencing.
A New Age: A New Audience — Look at current trends and national demographics and the need for new approaches to teaching. See how one professor has transitioned from a traditional distance delivery format to an online delivery format, and how content and technology were integrated.
Keeping Up With the Geeks: Teaching in the Online Environment — These technologies will help you transform on-campus courses into online courses without needing your own geek squad. Technologies include Dropbox, Prezi, Diigo, Jing, and Campus Pack.
