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.
