- Reading Group: Teaching Naked
Tuesday, May 20, 8:30 – 10:30
Didn’t read the book? Feel free to come anyway. We’ll be discussing Jose Antonio Bowen’s (President of Goucher College) 2012 book, Teaching Naked. The book examines the potential roles of technology to improve student learning and argues that face-to-face contact with faculty inside the classroom is key to student learning.
- Technology in the Liberal Arts Classroom
Tuesday, May 20, 10:45 – 12:30
College students and faculty are increasingly entangled in a digital world. But to what extent does the landscape of digital technology afford improvements to the ways we teach and learn? Join members of the Faculty Technology Fellows Program in a panel discussion of digital literacy and how some technologies might be used to: 1) provide new lenses on natural and behavioral phenomena; 2) permit the authorship and dissemination of new or alternative perspectives; and 3) cultivate a deeper understanding of otherwise complex relationships.
- Flipping the Liberal Arts Classroom
Thursday, May 22, 10:45 – 12:30
During this session, we will discuss what flipped teaching & learning looks like and potential uses in the liberal arts classroom. We will show several options for tools you can use to record yourself – from five-minute explanations to hour-long lectures – and how you can make these available to your students. Faculty with experience flipping the classroom will be available to share their experiences, offer practical advice, and discuss their students’ response.
