6-Week Workshop Offered
Event | January 21, 2010 10:10 PM
The Office of Information Technology and the University Libraries are currently offering a six-week Educational Technology Workshop (ETW). This certificate program will explore Web 2.0 tools and pedagogies along with methods for researching, sharing, collaborating, annotating, and establishing social presence using blogs, wikis, reference managers, podcasts, annotation tools, and more. The ETW is open to faculty, staff, and graduate students.
The advent of a rapidly expanding set of Web 2.0 tools challenges us to understand each new application's potential for enhancing learning and research. Many of these tools are designed for interactions in a group setting, so the ETW presents us with an opportunity to explore them together. Participants will have a chance to interact with the tools in a group setting and discuss what opportunities and challenges each presents.
The ETW will meet each Monday morning from 9-11 a.m. over six weeks (February 22 - April 5). Most of the work will occur during the workshop, though participants will be encouraged to continue their explorations between sessions.
Register by February 15 at http://dmc.umn.edu/etw. Space is limited, and you must be available to attend all sessions. All sessions will meet in room 210 Walter Library.
