For 2013-14, Educational Technology will be holding monthly workshops and presentations on topics related to The Liberal Arts in Public. The first two have been scheduled:
"Bring Your Own Device": An Educational Technology Reception, October 2 from 4.30-6 in & around LITC 115.
"Teaching and Learning with Web Writing: What's the Buzz?," October 14 (Trinity Days) from 10-11.30 in Gallows Hill.
This reception aims to do two things: introduce the Trinity campus to our new Educational Technology space, LITC 115 (the former Media & Music Library), and to have a conversation about academic workflows using smartphones and tablets. Regardless of whether you use one of these devices, please come for wine, snacks, and interesting conversation!
Join 5 Trinity collaborators for a presentation and discussion of Web Writing: Why and How for Liberal Arts Teaching and Learning, a digital book-in-progress under contract with Michigan Publishing. This edited volume explores why online writing matters for liberal arts education and illustrates how faculty and students are engaged in this work. During the fall 2013 “open peer review,” designated experts and general audiences will write online commentary on web essays to offer developmental feedback to authors and assist the editorial team in making selections for the final manuscript. Co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning, Educational Technology, and the Allan K. Smith Center for Writing and Rhetoric at Trinity College.
Although dates are still forthcoming, watch for upcoming events on 3D printing for the liberal arts (November), video in the classroom (February), building a web & social media presence (March), and the state of Moodle & WordPress at Trinity (April), as well as other special events throughout the year.
