Teaching & Technology 2016: Applied & Engaged Learning
October 17th, 2016 at The College at Brockport
This unconference brings together librarians, instructional designers, faculty, and teachers from K-16. There will be a mix of sessions and discussions that focus on the practical applications of teaching and technology, framed by the ideas of engaged and applied learning. We want the people involved to be active participants in their learning and to help shape the day. We are encouraging an informal environment that fosters collaboration and discussion in lieu of a formal conference.
Instead of waiting for the morning of the event to decide on unconference topics, we’re going to use the social voting tool, Tricider, to solicit interest in facilitating a session. Please propose or show interest in breakout sessions by adding ideas, pros/cons, or votes to this Tricider. You may wish to propose any of the following types of breakout sessions (descriptions modified, in part, from AEA 2014):
- Lightning Talks – Brief (5-10 minute) presentations about a practical application / lesson plan activity / something else that participants can institute right away (we will combine multiple talks into one breakout session).
- Roundtable – Roundtables are oral presentations with discussion with attendees seated around a table. Roundtable presentations typically include 15 minutes of presentation, followed by 30 minutes of discussion and feedback.
- Tool Demonstration – Teach your colleagues (in 15-20 minutes) about a tool that you love to use (we will combine multiple demonstrations into one breakout session).
- Think Tank – Focuses on a single issue or question. Initially, a chairperson orients attendees to the issue or question and relevant context. This may include small group exploration of parts of the larger issue or question.
