         SPRING 2018 :: INSTRUCTIONAL SEMINAR :: NEWS & NOTES :: UPDATES

The Technology Integration Center exists to support innovative teaching and learning by providing collaboration in course design, classroom technology, and academic projects in the School of Education. We're located on the second floor in 2071. Need help with a technology enhanced teaching project this semester? We can help.

 

This semester, the Technology Integration Center will offer a 5-week hybrid course design opportunity for interested faculty and staff in the School of Education. During the Instructional Design Seminar, the TIC will guide you step-by-step through some best practices and processes in online and hybrid course design. You will leave the seminar with your first course module built and with a strong foundation for completing your design project. The TIC will provide continued support for your design project even after you complete the seminar. This opportunity is open to all faculty and staff. Faculty engaged in redeveloping courses in the Executive Ed.D. program, as well as faculty and staff engaged in developing online professional development experiences, are encouraged to attend.

Tribe Teachers Community
We are excited to introduce Tribe Teachers, an online community for teacher graduates. The goal of Tribe Teachers is to provide opportunities for continues support to SOE teacher graduates. Amelia Wildman, PhD student in EPPL - CET, has been working with instructional faculty, the TIC, and the Office of Teacher Education and Community Engagement. Amelia is cultivating a Tribe Teachers Twitter presence, a Tribe Teachers Facebook group-page, and a Tribe Teachers web resource. Please follow and share Tribe Teachers with your teacher candidates and graduates.
Box View replacing Crocdoc
Between Fall and Spring semesters, Blackboard transitioned to Box for assignment inline grading. Students will still submit assignments just like before, and instructors can insert comments on student assignments. However, students can no longer export the annotated assignment. Blackboard inline grading is a great for short assignments. We recommend using the comment feature in Word to provide feedback on drafts and on essay assignments. Here's a short tutorial by Blackboard Admin Kristy Walker to show some of the features of inline grading.
