“The World Isn’t Flat, But Our Teaching Methods Might Be!”
In the wake of great technological innovation, maps of our world continue to be redefined. Maps are no longer just the dusty piece of paper on the classroom wall – they are active and compelling visuals that can help you and your students with problem solving, understanding, and engaging with technology. This talk discusses why working with maps is important, and how you can easily incorporate spatial thinking into your classroom practice.
We will be recording the presentation part of this session, and will post the video on our Web site.

Nominate someone to do an Innovation 20/20 session!
Anyone can be nominated – faculty, students, and staff – to conduct an Innovation 20/20 session. Each session consists of 20 minutes of presentation, followed by 20 minutes of discussion.
While it is difficult to pin down what is meant exactly by “innovative teaching,” here are are a few guidelines. Nominees should be more than just good teachers. They are people who take some risks and try new things. They are also people who are known to use one or more unique innovative strategies consistently as part of their teaching repertoire.
The focus is squarely on “innovation in teaching,” but if some attention is given to how technology makes the teaching innovation possible or feasible, all the better.
To submit a nomination, send the following information to Lloyd Rieber <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
*Name and email of the nominee
*Nominee’s department and/or program
*Short explanation of why you are nominating this person (e.g. in what way is the person innovative in his/her teaching)
Self-nominations are also accepted, but priority will be given to people nominated by others.
