Instructional Technology April Lunch: Getting Started with Online Collaboration Tools

Online collaboration tools (OCTs), such as Google Apps, are revolutionizing workplace productivity and teamwork. They also provide tremendous opportunities to enhance teaching, learning, and course management. These hands-on seminars will allow faculty to develop plans for how they might integrate OCTs into their classes. To register for the seminar, participants will be asked to complete a survey on initial ideas they have for using these apps. In the seminar, faculty will have the opportunity to develop specific plans for their courses. Working collaboratively in small groups with colleagues, CRLT consultants, and IT specialists they will consider how OCTs can be used to accomplish specific course goals, such as improving team-work during group projects, increasing interaction in large lectures, promoting student dialogue and reflection, or facilitating collaborative authorship, editing, and peer review. No previous experience with OCTs is required, and the sessions are open to faculty at all levels of technical sophistication, for beginners to "power users." 

Lunch will be provided.

To register for the April 4th afternoon session, complete the survey form below.  If you need more information on OCTs, please see this website.
