April: Diversity

The Art of Lecture

April 15, 3:00-4:00 pm, 207 Henderson

A well-crafted lecture is essential to teaching practice.  Dr. Tony Silvestri (History) and Dr. Kim Morse (History) will share their insights and practical advice on creating and delivering lectures that work.

Teaching Technologies Workshop: Podcasting

April 16, 3:00-4:00 pm, 206B Mabee

Students learn in many ways and instructors who use a variety of teaching tools are more likely to engage a larger number of students.  Podcasting could be another arrow in your teaching quiver.  You can create podcasts of course content or assign students a podcasting assignment.  In this workshop, you will learn about the tools needed for podcasting, the elements of an effective podcast, and the steps to follow to post a podcast to D2L.
