New Seminar Series: An "Idea Salon" for Faculty

Home > News & Updates > New Seminar Series: An "Idea Salon" for Faculty

The Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning (CCNMTL) is pleased to announce a new seminar series to provide faculty with ideas and best practices for using new technology in their courses.

This spring, the series features five weekly seminars on Thursday afternoons, March 29th through April 26th. In each session, faculty and instructors can explore ways to engage students, facilitate collaboration, connect beyond the classroom, and enhance learning.

These “inside-out” seminars start not with the technology, but with a teaching challenge, such as how to encourage discussion outside the classroom. CCNMTL staff will present pedagogical research on the challenge, discuss tools and approaches to solving the problem, and provide examples for inspiration. A salon-style format encourages discussion and sharing of ideas. Attendees are welcome to bring a lunch, and beverages will be provided.

All seminars are free and will take place in CCNMTL’s Faculty Support Lab in Butler Library, Room 204. Follow the links below for more information and to register.
