Imagine you’re in a meeting, seated around a table with eight other people. You want to share a URL with them, but it’s several levels down in the hierarachy of the particular website. What do you do?
If you’re all already connected online via a shared document or text messaging, then you could just drop the URL into a message for them to click on.
But what if you’re not all connected, or you don’t know the names and email addresses of all the people you want to share the URL with? ShoutKey is a great temporary URL shortener designed for exactly this kind of situation.
Registration for all COE faculty will be paid by the college (lunch is included in the registration).
We are pleased to announce the call for proposals and conference registration for the inaugural 2014 COE Innovation in Teaching Conference to be held on Friday, October 17, 2014 at the Georgia Center. This day-long conference will highlight innovative teaching among faculty and instructors within the college. Links to submit a proposal and register for the conference can be found on the conference web site.
All conference presenters must also register for the conference.
(Note: At the time this announcement was submitted to the COEfyi, only the link to the call for proposals was active on the conference web site. The Georgia Center is handling conference registrations and that link should be active very soon.)
All COE faculty are encouraged to submit a proposal to present a session, poster, or roundtable discussion. Faculty members who received 2014 Maymester Instructional Innovation Support grants are required to present. While we expect many of these sessions will also demonstrate the role of technology to support innovative teaching, this is not a requirement for a proposal.
Conference proposals due: Friday, October 3, 2014. Registrations due: Friday, October 10, 2014. Registration for all COE faculty will be paid by the college (lunch is included in the registration).
Proposals should include a descriptive title and a short abstract (50-100 words).
No teaching innovation should be considered too small for a proposal. This conference is meant as an opportunity for faculty to share what they consider to be an interesting innovation in their own teaching at UGA.
Proposals will be of two general types: Examples of teaching innovations; and research on teaching.
Proposals for teaching innovations must focus on undergraduate or graduate teaching within courses offered by the UGA College of Education. Proposals from Graduate Teaching Assistants will also be accepted, and should focus on teaching of courses within the College of education.
Proposals for research on teaching do not need to report on research conducted within COE courses, but the research results need to be relevant to college teaching. It is expected that research proposals will focus on participants consisting of adults or young adults.
Proposals can be co-authored by faculty and/or graduate teaching assistants.
All submissions that are consistent with proposal guidelines will be accepted. Faculty can also register to attend the conference sessions without presenting.
10- or 20-minute presentations bundled in a session for individual presentations, with time for dialogue and discussion at the end.
Posters: If you have an innovation idea that would be better featured in visual form, you are welcome to submit your work as a poster presentation.
Roundtable sessions: This is for teaching innovations that are better highlighted through oral reporting and conversation. Contact the conference chair, Dr. Lloyd Rieber, with questions.
