The Academic Computing Group and the Faculty Development Center, in collaboration with Microsoft, are pleased to offer faculty a full-day workshop designed to help participants develop competencies that will enable them to plan systemically for the selection, use and evaluation of technology tools and resources in a pedagogically appropriate manner.
This workshop is different from other faculty professional development workshops on technology. While others tend to focus on simply learning the technology tools, leaving it up to the participants to make the connection to pedagogy and content knowledge, this workshop is based on TPACK, which provides for an integrated approach to combining technology, pedagogy and content knowledge. While the workshop does contain Microsoft technology, its focus is not techno-centric. Rather, through participatory inquiry-based learning, it allows you to actively experience a range of technology tools and resources and connect these tools to research-based approaches to their use in teaching.
This workshop is presented by Samer Chidiac, Microsoft Senior Strategist and an international innovation expert.
