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.

Echo 360 Workshop Coming September 22nd

Echo 360 Workshop Flyer

MATC has begun a 1 year pilot of the Echo 360 Active Learning Platform, a tool for making instruction more efficient and student learning experiences more effective. Echo 360 is a comprehensive tool that allows you to upload a presentation, record lecture capture video, and poll students with a built in student response system. The Faculty Innovation Center is sponsoring an ECHO 360 workshop for faculty on Tuesday, Sept 22 at 10:30 am – 11:30 am in M201a. In this one hour session, faculty support liaison Mernathan Sykes will demonstrate how Echo 360 can be used to:

  • Provide interactive learning activities
  • Plan for online quizzing and direct student feedback
  • Engage students with multimedia content using the lecture capture
  • Review student activity using data analysis features

Seating is limited. Please respond (RSVP) by September 17th to reserve your seat by using our Echo 360 Workshop Sign-Up Form.


For additional information about the session and pilot, please see the workshop flyer.
