Community Building and Student Engagement: A Multidisciplinary Panel
Tuesday, November 21, 2006 – 1:30 – 3:30pm
Location: Telestudios Main Theatre, Lower Level, 2329 West Mall, Rm. #0110
How do we use technology and a variety of pedagogical methods (group work spaces, animations, bulletin boards, study questions, peer reviews, reflections, instructor spaces) to enhance the learning experiences and engagement of our students in a variety of classes in the sciences and the humanities?
Our objective in this panel presentation is to address this question and to generate among ourselves and with our audience reflections and further questions concerning opportunities for and challenges of encouraging deeper levels of learning and student engagement in our courses.
