Part 1: Collaboration and Students
This is the first of two workshops on thinking about and using IU-provided cloud services, with IU Box as a primary example. The focus will be on uses in instruction and facilitating student learning. In this session, we will focus more on the how these tools can be used to support and even promote group-based activity and collaboration.
Relevant for face-to-face and online instructional settings alike, these sessions will explore how we can use the tools that we have to provide students and those we serve with the best experience and increase student learning as possible.
Part 2: Online CoursesThis is the second of two explorations of what the different cloud-based tools that IU provides are, and how they can be used to support teaching and learning, especially in online and hybrid courses.. Part two will review the basics of cloud-based tools, the IUanyWare platform and cloud storage tools such as Box@IU. Most of the time will be devoted to examining how these tools can be used to help students "create and collaborate" - to work together to produce and share resources.
A Teaching & Learning Focused Workshop
When talking about these tools, how to use them and how they work will be a part of this discussion, but our primary focus will be on how we can use and employ them in our courses and help increase student engagement, facilitate good teaching and learning activities, and even make possible activities in online courses that in the past required a computer lab.
If you are interested in learning more about the tool specifically, we have provided some links to the left, and IT Training also provides information on the nuts-and-bolts. Also, I and any of the IT consultants in the CTL are happy to work with you one-on-one with both issues related to using the tool and using in in the context of your teaching.
