Extra, Extra– Read All About It: Instructor admits, “This isn’t going to be as bad as I thought it would be!”
The fact is, there is a great team for this project and it is going to be a great learning experience for everyone involved!
Today was my first hands-on experience with Adobe Connect. We met in the classroom in Smith Lab that I will actually be using this fall and took a couple of hours to play with Adobe Connect (not too bad – even I could get the hang of navigating the system). We also had time to check out a few glitches that I have experienced with my presentations and talk about teaching pedagogy and ways to be even more effective with some of the teaching strategies I have used in the past. It was quite a fun afternoon and went a long way to making me more comfortable not only with the technology, but also with the idea of using technology to enhance teaching and learning. Check out the highlights in the trailer below!
So, next steps include continued hands-on learning for me and the development of the IRB proposal for the project. Stay tuned! I may even figure out how to Tweet (and yes – I have a team member that can help me with that one !
