Conversations about the intersection of technology and teaching

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.


Join the RewirED Rewards program!

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.

New this semester, the Center for New Media Teaching and Learning will also be offering hands-on lab sessions that compliment the pedagogical discussions of the RewirED series and introduce faculty and staff to the software and technology solutions presented by the Center's educational technologists during the RewirED talks. All lab sessions will be held in the Faculty Support Lab in Butler Library room 204. The lab sessions are included in the Spring 2014 Schedule (below) and are denoted with an (*).

At the conclusion of the Spring 2014 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.

About rewirED

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.

This session celebrates the work of the Spring 2014 RewirED Rewards cohort. To join the Rewired Rewards cohort, faculty must have participated in at least four of the eight sessions of the Spring 2014 rewirED Series. Certificates of completion and participation awards will be presented during this session. We will also explore innovative uses of technology demonstrated during the spring term by seven of the Center's esteemed faculty partners, including how certain tools and techniques addressed during the rewirED series affected his or her classroom practice.

The faculty presenters are as follows: Emma Crandall (University Writing), Diane Dittrick (Environmental Science), Susan Jang (Teachers College), Reyes Llopis-Garcia (Spanish), Tamarah Moss-Knight (SSW), Hiie Saumaa (Literature Humanities), and Selby Schwartz (University Writing).

Examples of technology and tool implementation will include: Courseworks, Edblogs, Google Drive, Mediathread, SurveyMonkey, TedEd, Twitter, Voicethread, Wikischolars and Wikispaces.All past rewirED attendees are encouraged to join us and ask questions about content from any of the prior eight sessions. Best practices that emerged throughout the semester will be highlighted during the 12:00pm - 1:30pm time, as well as details about the Fall 2014 sessions.

RSVP required. Refreshments will be served during the Q/A with the seven faculty presenters in Butler Library room 522/523 from 1:30pm - 2:00pm.
