Technology to Assist Classroom Communication

Tuesday, October 11, 2016
2:00pm – 4:00pm

Storrs Campus
HBL Collaborative Classroom

For international and domestic instructors “Assignment? What assignment?” “I’m failing because I can’t understand my instructor.” “You sent us an email?! We don’t do email!!!” “I don’t even know who’s in my group.” “I have no idea what we learned in class today.” Miscommunication in a course can lead to missed opportunities and a lot of grievances. The causes can be related to differences in language, culture, age, or simply lack of interest. In this workshop we will explore ways technology can help bridge gaps in communication between instructors and students, and among students themselves, leading to higher levels of engagement with the course and consequently better learning. Strategies covered will include in-class communication, clickers, smartphone apps, online tools like Google Docs, HuskyCT, and social media.
