The Collaborative Learning track is a series of three workshops for Columbia instructors and graduate students exploring group learning activities and digital technologies that support them. Following up on our general discussion of collaborative learning in the first session, this workshop delves more deeply into the logistics of implementation.
What can you use as evidence of your teaching practice? This two-part series provides an overview of the purpose and content of a teaching portfolio for the academic job market. This is part 2 of a two-part series, participants work together to construct their portfolios and refine their reflections regarding each component part.
In this introductory session we will outline key considerations for blending a course. Discussions topics will include using backward design to plan blended learning, considering the strengths and limitations of various teaching and learning modalities while keeping learning objectives in mind, the shifting roles of a student-centered learning environment, tips for integrating assessment technologies to iterate on approaches, and technologies to get started. Columbia faculty and graduate students from all departments are welcome and encouraged to attend.
