KCTCS Teaching & Learning Institute: Spring 2014 - Jefferson
Friday, April 11, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
Please join us in April as KCTCS and The Office for Professional Development and Innovation hosts regional Teaching & Learning with Technology Institutes! The Institute will be held at 3 locations across the state and will offer the same tracks and sessions to ensure consistent information is shared among all faculty and staff. During lunch you'll be able to participate in roundtable discussions and visit with partners and vendors of educational technology and products. Whether you teach online, on-campus, or a combination, you are sure to find sessions that will spark creative ideas for your courses.
The 4 Teaching and Learning tracks are:
- Pedagogy - sessions on pedagogy include topics like Engaging Students, Learning Styles and modes of instruction
- Assessments - these sessions will give you ideas and tools for improving course assessments and managing grading tools such as rubrics and online grade centers
- Instructional Resources: Creating and Curating Content - sessions in this track include tools, technology and ideas to spice up your current course content
- Best Practices: Tips, Tricks & Shortcuts - this track has a variety of topics to help you manage your courses, use engaging content and go further with web 2.0 and social tools
The event is free for all KCTCS faculty and staff, but you will need to get approval from your local college for travel reimbursement.

Partners and Vendors will be set up during lunch for you to visit with!
