DCS is pleased to announce our first Faculty Showcase, where members of the Rutgers community are invited to join us for lunch and learn about ways that instructors are using DCS technology to enrich their class. In DCS workshops, our Campus Supervisors typically offer a showcase or tutorial of emerging technologies. The Faculty Showcase is a chance to hear directly from faculty about what technologies they find useful and to learn tips they have picked up along the way.
This Faculty Showcase - to be held at noon on April 18 in Tillett Hall Room 118 - will feature three, ten-minute talks from instructors using technology to bolster classroom participation:
- Jt Chirco, from the Office of Information Technology and the Computer Science Department of SAS, will share his experience using Socrative to get feedback in-class from students.
- Andy Egan, from the Department of Philosophy, will explain how he used a projected twitter feed to encourage comments from students.
- Nikolaos Linardopoulos, from the School of Communication and Information, will talk about his use of iClickers to poll students.
DCS staff will be in attendance to answer questions regarding how other faculty may be able to begin using the technologies discussed in their classes. Lunch will be provided. Please register to confirm your attendance so we can ensure that we can accommodate everyone. If you or one of your colleagues would be interested in presenting at this or at a future forum, please let us know.
