rewirED is a place to discuss how we can best harness the power of technology to make learning environments as effective as possible. It’s about taking the best thought and practice and the best technology and blending them in a way that allow us to capitalize on both. It’s about sharing ideas, asking questions, and being inspired.
Participate in four or more sessions in one semester and the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning will deem you "rewirED"!
Earn stamps on your RewirED Rewards card for each session you attend. RewirED Rewards cards are available at rewirED sessions and in the Faculty Support Lab in Butler 204.
At the conclusion of the Fall 2013 semester, participants who attend at least four sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion and an Oren's Daily Roast gift card to keep you wired into the next semester! CCNMTL will honor your commitment to technology and teaching at an end-of-semester showcase where you can elect to participate in a "show-and-tell" about how this semester's sessions affected your classroom.
rewirED talks are for Columbia faculty, staff, and teaching assistants interested in conversations about the intersection of technology and teaching. At each session we'll look at a problem we think occurs when technology and teaching merge. We'll present research, show the best tools and how to incorporate them into your course, bring up challenges, and open things up for discussion.
rewirED is sponsored by the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning (CCNMTL). CCNMTL partners with Columbia University faculty to enhance teaching and learning through the purposeful use of technology and new media.
The Art and Science of Course Design February 7, 2014 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Butler Library, Room 208
Often we start the semester by picking an array of tools from the course management system, attempting to answer the question what can I do, given the technology available? But what if we first looked at course goals, objectives, and assessment strategies, and instead of technology for technology's sake, together we aim to answer the more important question of what do I want to accomplish? This session, offered by Adrienne Garber and Michael Cennamo, educational technologists at the Columbia Center for New Media, Teaching and Learning (CCNMTL), explores the different facets of hybrid course design. For the purposes of this session, hybrid refers to a combination of face-to-face and online teaching, and the ability to integrate both into an effective learning environment. The seminar will outline a strategy for implementing 21st century teaching in your classroom by including guidance about constructing overall course goals, creating learning objectives from those goals, transforming those objectives into appropriate learning activities, determining metrics for evaluation and assessment of your students achievements, selecting the best tools to fit your activities, and collecting feedback in order to iterate the entire process. Please come with your teaching challenges!
