“Show and Tell 2.0: Connecting with our Past, Present, and Future”
Technology and social media platforms today have advanced to a point that they allow pre-service teachers various outlets for “showing and telling” their insights, expertise, questions, and stories of what it means to teach in new and interesting ways. In this presentation, I will describe several tools that I use with my undergraduate pre-service teachers to help them 1) reflect on their past experiences, 2) collect, share and discuss ideas with their colleagues, and 3) make connections to their future students. ​

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 <>:

*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.
