Faculty and staff from across the University of Richmond were invited to participate in an informative networking event sponsored by Boatwright Library and the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology that aimed to highlight innovative strategies in teaching, learning, and creativity.
Erika Damer (Classical Studies), Joe Essid (The Writing Center), Suzanne Jones (English), Jeannine Keefer (Art), and Melissa Ooten (Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies) discussed their experiences using tools such as iPods, Digital Stories, Google Maps, and WordPress blogs, and how these various technologies have encouraged student collaboration, active engagement, and stronger research and writing skills.
Plus the Fall CTLT Calendar, Pizza and Pedagogy Announcements, and what resources on enhancing teaching effectiveness has inspired your CTLT liaisons.
