Spring 2016 Tech Topics Short Courses

We are pleased to announce the Spring 2016 special topics in educational technology series.

Ed tech short courses

I want to introduce an exciting change to our plan of study—1-credit short courses that will allow in-depth looks at cutting edge topics and techniques. The courses will combine online components with in-person workshops or seminars. Every course will be organized and evaluated on the students' production of a portfolio piece and/or work they can incorporate into their professional lives (e.g., a website for students, mobile app, unit plan). The course will start with a week of online study where students will examine exemplars, read relevant research and theory, and plan their projects. Hands on sessions, typically on weekends, will be taught in our signature studio or seminar style, depending on the topic. After the workshop, participants will have a week to complete their projects and submit them to the course instructor for evaluation. [...]
