U of A Educators Can Explore Teaching Innovations by Their Peers During Online Poster Session
The Global Campus is hosting a Teaching Innovations Digital Poster Session online Sept. 16-25 to enable University of Arkansas educators to gain teaching insights from their peers and support from Global Campus instructional designers.
The session will provide on-demand access to "digital poster" videos that highlight innovative approaches to learning at the U of A. Poster pages also will include links to relevant teaching resources and registration buttons to sign up for live question-and-answer chats. The poster videos will be available any time Sept. 16 through 25. Participants must register for synchronous discussions.
The online-only event is a great opportunity to explore creative teaching solutions from peers and learn how instructional designers can help U of A educators incorporate new approaches in their courses.
Some Featured Teaching Innovations include:
- Humanizing Learning
- Virtual Field Trips
- H5P, a plugin to create interactive content
- Developing Online Internships
Those who need assistance to join the poster session can contact Mary Price at firstname.lastname@example.org.
