Using Technology to Promote and Assess Active Learning

Presented by Jill Jemison on March 28, 2013 at 12:00 pm

This session will look at how to incorporate technology tools to engage today’s students and support hybrid learning. We will look at tips and tricks to effectively mix online and face-to-face learning, including wikis, blogs, discussion boards, online quizzing and content from asset repositories like MedEd Portal, HEAL, MERLOT and various discipline-specific resources. This session will focus on ways that faculty could use students’ independent study time to efficiently convey factual content while using face to face time to reinforce higher-order skills like interpretation, analysis and synthesize.
