Innovation 20/20 with Dr. Nathan Jenkins

“A Flipped Class Experiment (n = 1): Trial Run in an Exercise Science Course”

The ‘flipped classroom’ approach involves moving content delivery outside of the classroom, and using in-class time to focus on the information processing part of learning (synthesis of ideas, problem-solving, etc.). The method has been used for many years in some disciplines, particularly in the humanities. This presentation will provide a personal account of its implementation in an exercise science course, including summaries of what has and has not worked, and some strategies for the future.

Fall 2014 Review

ITT Fall 2014 ReviewNow that the fall 2014 semester has ended and we all begin our planning to teach in the spring, ITT would like to say thank you to some folks that helped make it a great semester!

“It’s the Little Things” Innovation 20/20 with Dr. April Galyardt  talks course design for an introductory statistics graduate level course, and explains the importance of misconceptions, concept maps, course preparation, authentic practice, project-based assessments, formative feedback, rubrics – watch near the end of the video for a good book recommendation! In the second Innovation 20/20 this semester, Dr. Ilse Mason presents “Online walking: from Oxymoron to Reality” , a close look at how a traditionally taught physical education class was transformed into a mostly online class, with special attention towards feedback and accountability. We’re so happy to have these two great new videos to add to the collection of Innovation 20/20s!

Throughout the semester, two groups of faculty members get together to explore ideas for improving teaching and learning, and to consider what innovation might look like in their own classes. From online course design and development to the “essentials” topics such as Web 2.0 tools, online learning, video/audio production, and mobile learning. We had an incredible group of faculty this semester, and we all engaged in fun, spirited storytelling and discussion as we examined the latest trends and issues surrounding innovative teaching methods. These academies are collaborative, drawing participants from all departments within the college of education and the office of online learning. It’s where ideas cross-pollinate and where the magic happens! So, thank you to the fall semester’s participants, and please consider coming back once in a while to share an idea or two with the rest of us!

Fall 2014 marked Innovation and Teaching and Technology’s 1st annual Innovation in Teaching Conference at the College of Education. This event was a big collaboration between so many faculty members here at the college, and we are so grateful for your contributions. The keynote speaker, Dr. Larry Johnson, chief executive officer for the New Media Consortium, delivered a well-received talk about the evolution of the modern university in the context of the dramatic changes that have occurred in the technologies, networks, software, and systems of society. We are already planning for next year’s conference and reviewing and seeking your feedback so that we can make it even better!

Finally, we’re happy to be offering more direct support for innovative teaching (big and small) to faculty. Many of our initial requests have been to help faculty navigate the world of online learning and specifically building courses via the eLC. However, we are here to help faculty with any request to try something a little new and perhaps a little daring. All it takes is a faculty member’s request – a short email to Lloyd will do – for support in this area, and we are now able to provide a graduate assistant that will work with you 1-1 on a short-term basis.

It’s been a big fall 2014! We hope you all are having a great holiday break and we look forward to seeing you in 2015!

Thanks to Dr. Ilse Mason for her recent Innovation 20/20 Series presentation and discussion!

Innovation 20/20 with Dr. Ilse Mason

Online Walking: From Oxymoron to Reality

Traditionally, physical education courses take place in a face-to-face setting and because of their nature, present unique challenges when transforming them into an online format. In this presentation, I will share how an online walking course was created and elaborate on the role of technology in this course.

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 at lrieber@uga.edu:

*Name and email of the nominee
*Nominee¹s 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.

“It’s the Little Things”

Innovations can be flashy and obvious or they can be subtle and unobtrusive. I’ve incorporated changes of both sorts, and have often found that the subtle changes have a greater impact on student learning.

“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.

httpv://youtu.be/IjwhOwNi4Ew

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.

Dr. Deanna Cozart – Facilitating Personalized Learning in Online and Large Classes

Dr. Deanna Cozart’s recent Innovation 20/20 presentation, “Facilitating Personalized Learning in Online and Large Classes”, is now available to view online.

“In my courses, we consider how individual views on diversity influence what you do in the classroom, how your teaching practice creates possibilities to further opportunities for disenfranchised groups, and finally how the issues discussed in class can expand your understanding of diversity and the possibilities for change. This is no small task, particularly in online and large classes (greater than 30 students) where there is limited instructor-student interaction. In this session, I will demonstrate specific strategies that I have found helpful in online and large classes to get students more invested and involved with the course content and facilitate more meaningful learning experiences.”

“Facilitating Personalized Learning in Online and Large Classes”

Description:

In my courses, we consider how individual views on diversity influence what you do in the classroom, how your teaching practice creates possibilities to further opportunities for disenfranchised groups, and finally how the issues discussed in class can expand your understanding of diversity and the possibilities for change. This is no small task, particularly in online and large classes (greater than 30 students) where there is limited instructor-student interaction. In this session, I will demonstrate specific strategies that I have found helpful in online and large classes to get students more invested and involved with the course content and facilitate more meaningful learning experiences.

We will be recording the presentation part of this session, and will post the video on our Web site.
