Room:

Description:
This session will be collaborative and interactive. The presenters, who hail from a variety of departments and colleges around campus, will guide participants through a mini-retreat, similar to the TILT teaching retreat in which we participated as a group in the summer of 2012. Each presenter will share a part of the retreat that inspired him/her to try something new in the classroom, from instructional videos to student-created documentaries. In addition, each presenter will share one new idea he/she has tried in the classroom this academic year as a result of taking part in this working group.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: 1. The presenters will share how a TILT summer teaching retreat had a direct impact on their teaching and learning. 2. The presenters will share technology-infused teaching ideas which stem from their own curiosity about the possibilities that technology affords them as teachers and as learners. 3. The presenters will share how they have kept their intellectual curiosity alive by meeting once per month to collaborate on their teaching and learning. Target Audience: Colleagues who are seeking meaningful, engaging ways to incorporate technology into their classrooms (as opposed to technology for the sake of technology).

Date:
Wednesday, January 16th 2013
Start Time:
10:00 AM
Session Length:
50 Minutes
Room:

Description:
The session will discuss ideas and experiences related to the recent development of a "mobile econ lab" by the Department of Economics and the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. The lab consists of 30 iPads that are supplemented with student-owned devices in order to ensure that all students in a medium sized class can access the internet simultaneously. This access enables econ instructors to conduct in-class experiments that simulate economics concepts, including market clearing, market failure, public goods, and cap and trade. The session will orient around sharing lessons and insights that have been gained in the early stages of this project.
Goals and Target Audience:
The main goal is to share lessons and ideas related to the use of mobile internet devices in the classroom, and to provide a forum for discussion. The targeted audience is anyone interested in exploring similar approaches in the classroom.
