Technology for Teaching & Learning @ TRU
In this ten-week program, participants will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of technologies available to support teaching and learning at TRU including: Moodle, WordPress, Google Apps for Education, online conferencing (i.e., Big Blue Button), and others as determined by participant interest.
Attention will also be paid to Open Educational Resources (OER’s), e-portfolios, SMART boards, and how online technologies can be used to help redesign courses for improved success and student engagement.
Participation will be mainly face-to-face, but some weeks will be through web conference (Big Blue Button) and online through Moodle and/or WordPress.
Participants will be encouraged to learn by doing; emphasis will be on creating materials and learning experiences which should be for use in your current or future teaching practice.
If you are enrolled in the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program, the certificate of completion can be used to apply for exemption on PIDP 3240: Media Enhanced Learning
