Traveling Workshops Across the State:

A. Meeting Pedagogy Challenges for Faculty
This workshop will ask faculty to come up with a top ten list of their most pressing pedagogical challenges. We will discuss and rank these challenges, see how this list compares with lists developed at other schools, and demonstrate methods for addressing those challenges through the use of some tools of technology. The workshop will benefit both faculty who have never used technology in the classroom and those who have. This workshop combines elements of last year's successful workshops on Process Writing and Technology for Reluctant Faculty, along with demonstrations of current online resources at locations like Project Merlot.
