Event description

Description

The Office of Faculty Development and Instructional Development have partnered with colleagues from across campus to host a full-day conference on January 19th. The goal of this event is to provide an opportunity for UMass Dartmouth faculty to showcase their innovative teaching and learning practices and to network with faculty from other disciplines.

Keynote: Neuroscience + Learning Research + Education Technology = Education 3.0

Speaker: Dr. Jeff D. Borden, Chief Innovation Officer at Saint Leo University

This highly interactive keynote session will "Do, Show, Tell, Review, and Ask" as participants engage in pattern recognition, craft problems prior to solving them, collaborate in real-time to promote social learning, and employ other, immediately usable techniques for the classroom. This presentation will focus on ways to create multi-nodal and multi-modal connections based on effective practices from practitioners around the globe, all of which could be categorized as Education 3.0.

Participants will be shown many examples of web assets and learning experiences that promote social learning, transformative learning, game based learning, and learning based on cognitive science. The audience will see and hear about how to create authentic assessment and problem-based learning experiences. Be sure to bring your devices, as the session will encourage feedback, web-based experiences, and interaction. Finally, participants will leave this presentation with tangible resources and opportunities for immediate application.

Join us for an engaging day of collaboration, exploration, and innovation. Refreshments offered with a reception to follow.
