Hang Out with the World in Your Classroom:
Using Internet Video Conferencing to Enhance Student and Faculty Learning
Wednesday, December 18 – Friday, December 20, 2013
KCELT and various teaching partners will be hosting a 3-day workshop series on incorporating internet video conferencing (IVC) into face-to-face classroom environments. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about several platforms and brainstorm ways that they may integrate IVC to meet one or more objectives. The Institute is participant focused, and all will leave having shared ideas regarding their next steps in using IVC.
By the end of the series, participants of the Fall 2013 Technology Teaching & Learning Institute should be able to:
- Indicate various IVC platforms and their basic functionalities
- Identify ways IVC can be integrated into face-to-face classrooms to enhance collaboration, interaction, and engagement
- Create lessons that integrate IVC with one or more of their courses’ intended learning outcomes
- Discuss the implications of the integration of IVCs in Kirkwood Community College classes
