Event Description

This workshop provides the opportunity for course instructors to explore the possibilities of using social media as a culturally responsive tool in course instruction. Participants will learn about the important elements of Twitter (hashtags, Twitter Chats, professional networks) as tools to engage students in discussions and collaboration. Additionally, they will learn ways to collaborate with other faculty members across universities to engage students in collaborative, topical discussions. Finally, they will create individualized semester plans to begin the journey of incorporating social media (Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram) within their courses. Instructors who complete this course are eligible for a $100 stipend through the Office of the Cross Endowed Chair in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. Registration is required.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
