The Educational Technology Workshop

The Educational Technology Workshop (ETW) is a six-week workshop series that explores emerging web tools and pedagogies. It is a partnership between the Office of Information Technology and the University Libraries and will blend instructor presentations with collaborative problem solving. The ETW will meet once a week for six weeks on Tuesday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to noon; October 15th - November 9th in room 310 of Walter Library.

You will explore methods for researching, publishing, collaborating, annotating, and personal learning networks using tools like ebook editors, apps, personal response systems, reference managers, and more.
The advent of a rapidly expanding set of Web tools challenges us to understand each new application's potential for enhancing learning and research. Many of these tools are designed for interactions in a group setting, so the ETW presents us with an opportunity to explore them together. Participants will have a chance to interact with the tools in a group setting and discuss what opportunities and challenges each presents.
To experience a suite of both centrally supported and freely available cloud-based tools that can support teaching and learning.
To develop a flexible method for exploring and evaluating the utility of new technologies to enhance teaching and learning environments and become aware of University policy issues and support structures.
Registration is now open at http://z.umn.edu/etw2013. Space is limited.
