The TPACK Expo: Blending Technology, Pedagogy and Content to Enhance Student Learning
Thursday, April 24, 2014 from 12:30 PM to 1:45 PM
Winston Salem, NC
Are you interested in learning a new pedagogical technique like backward design, or do you want to incorporate a technology like screencasting into your teaching? Are you perplexed trying to determine which technologies or pedagogies are most appropriate for the content of you course? Would you like to learn more about the general education outcomes and the types of assignments your colleagues have created to meet these outcomes?
You're interested, of course, but you are not sure if you have the time to participate in a 90-minute workshop?
If so, the TPACK Expo is for you. TPACK stands for Technology, Pedagogy and Content Knowledge (Mishra & Koehler, 2006). Following the TPACK model, the expo is intentionally designed to meet the needs of faculty who teach in the era of TMI (Too Much Information), TLT (Too Little Time) and TMC (Too Many Choices). The expo will feature a number of 15-minute teaser sessions on various technologies, pedagogies, and instructional practices used by the faculty of WSSU.
You choose the session or sessions to attend and then complete a short evaluation after the expo to let us know which sessions should become full-length workshops.
