Do you want to learn about an exciting new online instructional tool to help students gain collective sense-making skills? If so, register by noon on Oct. 23 for a hands-on workshop hosted by Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) in the Dreamery (Room 4 in the Shields Building) on Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 2 to 5 p.m.
TLT has worked with Dr. Marcela Borge, past TLT Fellow and assistant professor of education, on developing a new instructional tool called CREATE (Collective Regulation, Enhanced Analysis, and Thinking Environment) to help students develop collaborative skills and help instructors support and manage team discussions. The workshop will help you learn about the tool, hear from faculty who have used it successfully in their courses, and offer an opportunity to give TLT feedback as they continue to enhance CREATE.
There will be three one-hour parts in this workshop. You can pick which part or parts to attend. We recommend at least the first two parts if you are new to the system:
- Part 1: Discussion on how CREATE is integrated into various courses. You will experience using CREATE as discussion group members.
- Part 2: A walk-through of the instructor interface and demonstration on how to set up courses and discussions, as well as how to use the grading tool.
- Part 3: For those who are interested in the advanced function of the tool, TLT and Borge will demonstrate various aspects of the system.
