ER&D Spring 2017 Technology Tool Shop

ER&D Email Banner

ZERD 094: Technology Tool Shop I (1c)

The college has an incredible inventory of innovative technologies to enhance teaching and learning, but it is difficult for faculty to find the time to explore these technologies and implement into a curriculum. This workshop helps bridge that gap. Participants will design their own curriculum specific project using the technology of their choice. This will be accomplished with the assistance and guidance of “technology mentors”. Participants will also review pedagogical best practices for instruction with new technologies. This FQAS course can be completed for “renewal” credit.

ZERD 012: Technology Tool Shop II

This advanced technology course will scaffold from the concepts explored in Technology Tool Shop I.  Participants will continue to build upon their curriculum-specific project or choose a new project to explore, using the technology of their choice.  This will be accomplished with the assistance and guidance of “technology mentors”. Participants will also review pedagogical best practices for instruction with new technologies.

An important announcement for WileyPLUS users

Planned Upgrades for WileyPLUS users:

On Saturday, April 22nd from 1 AM to 7 AM ET, WileyPLUS will be unavailable due to a scheduled improvement release.

This release focuses on performance improvements, better user experience for LMS integrated users, and updates for customers using Math courses.

Performance Improvements: WileyPLUS will be updated for improved performance.

Improvements for Integrated Users: Instructors integrating WileyPLUS with their campus Learning Management System (LMS) and using ungraded assignments will no longer see those ungraded assignments count towards the students’ total score in the LMS.

Updates for Math Customers: Question assistance in math courses, such as images, and algorithmic solutions, will appear as expected.

If you have any questions, please contact The WileyPLUS Team at accountmanager@wiley.com.
