Share your Teaching Strategies
What creative ways do you keep the student learning experience moving forward even if your classes are canceled due to snow? What role does instructional technology play in reaching out to your students and providing them with structured instructional activities even when there are no classes? Please send your teaching strategies to email@example.com and we will share them in the upcoming issues of iDevelop.
If you have not done so already, please take a moment to check out the Library’s Films on Demand collection, TED Talks, Academic Earth, Khan Academy, and other web sites that can help you supplement your class discussions....especially during weeks when your face time with students may be impacted by the weather. You will be surprised what you can find online that is free, open, and useful! For more ideas about how to "keep teaching" beyond the classroom walls, contact Andrea Milligan or Andrea DeFusco-Sullivan.
