Event Details

Electronic devices have become ubiquitous fixtures in life and in the classroom. Yet many instructors feel that their use in class creates a barrier to learning.  What role should instructors play in defining their use in the classroom, and how can instructors encourage their students to use their devices in a more strategic and productive manner, in class and beyond?

You’ll leave this workshop with a draft of your own digital policy for use in future teaching. In advance, please look at this PBS Mediashift story on how a digitally-focused instructor at N.Y.U. struggled with his decision to ban laptops.

Hosted by the Faculty of Arts Teaching + Learning Committee and presented by Julie Sedivy from LLC (Linguistics, Languages and Cultures).
