Symposium Keynote: Learning for the Future: Leveraging Lessons Learned to Empower Ourselves and the Learners We Serve
Dr. Carl S. Moore, assistant chief academic officer at the University of the District of Columbia
Nebraska's sesquicentennial provides the perfect opportunity to reflect on the future of our learners and how we best prepare them for our global society. How can our instruction continue to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse student body? How do we future-proof ourselves as instructors with the ever increasing rapid advances in technology? In this workshop, we will explore these questions as we learn to value the utility inclusive instructional approaches have for all learners, identify evidence-based strategies that best engage and motivate learners, and make decisions around leveraging new technologies to promote learning. We will reflect on how past and current realities can help us empower learners in and for the future.
The events below include both those wholly sponsored by the CTT as well as other events on campus related to improving teaching and learning at UNL.
Emerging Pedagogies: Virtual and Augmented Reality Workshop
Virtual reality technology affords us new opportunities to provide our students with experiences that aren’t normally possible. From exploring the human body with lifelike 3D models to transporting students to locations far removed in both space and time, VR opens up a whole new realm of possibilities in our classrooms. Come learn about ways that Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies are being used to enhance student learning.
Dr. Adam Wagler from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications and Brian Wilson from the Center for Transformative Teaching will showcase some ways VR is being utilized in higher education. After the presentation, you will have the opportunity to experience various VR applications. Lunch will be provided and seats are limited to 30. Register now.
