PiP: Plugging into Pedagogy
In Fall 2011, twelve faculty members from across the campus were selected to participate in the Plugging into Pedagogy (PiP) project. These faculty chose a current assignment or created a new project or assignment and then evaluated their assignments from a pedagogical standpoint. In the next step, faculty will revamp the assignments by infusing a variety of technologies. Some of the participants are exploring the use of technology in the following areas:
- Transforming the classical lecture-format popular within the STEM field to create a more interactive and interpersonal lecture-format.
- Discovering ways that students can create interactive timelines (on their own or collaboratively) to track the development of each individual Enlightenment figure they research.
- Developing a student collaboration project whereby students learn skills in video editing as they explore course concepts such as feminism, institutions, and narratives.
- Creating an international commodity marketing simulation game for students to use in class.
Stay tuned for more PiP updates!
