Daily, our students use digital devices, web tools, and apps to communicate, share and learn. We can transform our curriculum to support this learning so that our students carry their knowledge and engage with our content beyond the course. We begin by exploring digital pedagogy and seeing examples of its implementation with students. With this foundation we will learn how to transform our virtual learning spaces into active learning communities where students support each other and work collaboratively towards learning goals. We will also discover quick ways to modify our instruction and current curricula to best support the needs of our students. Participants will walk away with a strong foundation in digital pedagogy that transforms their students' learning experiences and helps them achieve their professional goals.
Joining in will be a worldwide community of teachers - Join us!
