Winter Learning Community: Blended & Online Learning - Participation opportunity for all!

Everyone welcome!  The brown-bag-friendly Learning Communities will meet in the newly remodeled Leighton 426. Join us for any or all of the discussion topics below.

What: After the fall programming on big questions about online learning, the Carleton Learning Communities (part of a joint project of Carleton and St. Olaf’s libraries and IT) will focus this winter on the nuts and bolts of blended and online learning. Emerging learning technologies and techniques bring changes to the way we help students learn, in all our complementary roles. Over the course of four discussions, the learning community will provide an opportunity to experiment with topical software and discuss the always-varied implications for their implementation and support.  

When: 12:30-1:30 p.m.

  • Week 2, Wed. Jan 15: “Technology and its influence on Educational Transformation” (a continued discussion from the 1/14 LTC noon presentation)
  • Week 4, Wed. Jan 29: Flipped classroom, screencasts, and videos
  • Week 6, Wed. Feb 12: Active learning, polling and clickers
  • Week 8, Wed. Feb 26: Online text interaction

Where: Leighton 426

What to bring: yourself, your colleagues, your curiosity, and a willingness to try things out (Wifi-device & lunch optional).

We look forward to continued interesting discussions with you.

The spring term  Learning Community topic will return to Digital Scholarship, Part II.
