For faculty, sessional lecturers, instructors, staff and graduate students.
This short course will provide an introduction to how learning technologies may support student collaboration, reflection, creation, sharing and other key elements of learning and provide opportunity for you to consider how they may do so in your course and for your own professional development and research. The course will provide hands on experience in using several tools and provide ample time for discussion and debate about the challenges, opportunities and potential impact technology may have on your teaching practice and your students’ learning.
- Evaluate various learning technologies in relation to their potential contribution to their students' learning
- Create and publish digital learning resources for use in their own teaching and learning
- Reflect on their current and future use of learning technology
- Assess how the learning technologies available through the University of Saskatchewan might be used in their courses
