Digital Pedagogy

Improving Students' Learning by Having Them Teach

February 8, 2018, 2:00pm
Faculty often tell us, “I didn’t really learn it until I taught it.” In this session, we will talk about positioning students as instructors within the context of an existing course—placing them in charge of their own and others’ learning. We’ll explore the impetus for changing the dynamic, discuss challenges and opportunities, and surface models that can adopted or adapted for your own course. Please join your Berkeley colleagues for this open and informal discussion.
Registration is unavailable.

Media-Rich Content: Towards a Purposeful Pedagogy

March 12, 2018, 4:00pm
Why do we use or create media-rich content in our classes? What are the pros and cons for student learning? How do we obtain or publish these materials ethically, legally, and in ways that protect our students? In this dialogue, we'll explore sources available to Berkeley instructors and talk about privacy, fair use, and issues of access. Come join in the discussion and help us build a resource list that can be shared widely with other faculty.
