Technonauts: Exploring Digital Learning
This monthly series of discussions is intended to stimulate some interesting conversations about your adventures in digital learning. If you've been experimenting with technology in your classes, bring stories of your ideas and successes (and failures) to share so that we can see what others are doing, offer some thoughts and feedback, and (hopefully) learn together from everyone's examples. In this inaugural discussion, CTE Director, Dr. Brian Etheridge, will kick things off by sharing some of the work he's been doing with a national team of faculty in designing cybersecurity scenarios for deployment on an LMS.
Dr. Brian Etheridge is the Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence and Professor of History at GGC.
