D.A.T.E.Dr. Michael WoodworthRelatively recent technological advancements have dramatically increased the pure volume of information that is readily available, as well as the ease at which (as well as the methods by which) this information can be obtained.
This will cause major challenges in the next few years for our traditional methods of teaching many of our University courses.
It is proposed that the impact of the internet and various on-line and social media devices on traditional University courses will become so pronounced that by the year 2020, many University Professors will be forced to drastically alter the way they deliver their material or face…..extinction.
Fight plagiarism with prevention: Even the best detection methods and technologies cannot guarantee to 'catch ’ plagiarism. This session will focus on assignments that spark intellectual interest and reduce the temptation to plagiarize or cheat in other ways (buying papers).
This session will be for faculty who are interested in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and/or Action Research in the classroom.
An overview of research methods will be provided as well as some time dedicated to matching your own research questions to the various presented methods. More details will be provided soon.
In this workshop, we will take a closer look at the statistical reports generated from marking multiple choice(bubble sheet) exams.
Media Assignments: This session will focus on creating media assignments that are aligned with course goals and learning outcomes.
This session will focus on how you can use UBC Wikis http://wiki.ubc.ca to foster collaborative inquiry. UBC Wikis support asynchronous communication and group collaboration. If process is a part of your learning outcomes, then Wikis may be the right tool for creation, collection, research and reflection of knowledge construct-ion in your course.
