Join the CTLT liaisons for this week’s Pizza & Pedagogy event: Student Voices on Technology.
The classroom technology that professors enthusiastically attempt doesn’t always get a warm welcome from the students out in the lecture hall, especially when gadgets feel gimmicky or class time is wasted as instructors fumble with gear. To get a sense of just what students think of their professors’ classroom technology use, the CTLT will invite four tech-savvy students to weigh in on the best—and worst— moments in classroom technology they have seen.
We will meet Thursday, December 1st at 12:00 noon in Boatwright Library, Room 311 (Nostrae Filiae Room). Pizza and Soda included.

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.
