- What’s So Scary about Research? Although we expect our students to have some grasp of research conventions and synthesis, and many courses require a research project as evidence of mastery of prescribed competencies, we often dread these assignments, sometimes even putting them off until the very end of the semester when it is too late to ensure quality through drafting and revision and too late to address plagiarism productively. This webinar will offer some tips to overcoming this dread by integrating research into your course early on and building research projects in stages. Hosted by Mike Hill.
- Utilize Socrative in your classes. Socrative – a student response system that allows students the ability to respond to faculty using their computers, laptops, tablets, or Smartphones. Carrying out formative assessment can provide valuable insight into what concepts need to be reviewed or even re-taught. It allows you to administer exit tickets and quizzes to your students regardless of what devices they are on as long as their device has web browser capabilities. Socrative only takes teachers 3 minutes to set up and takes students 20 seconds to load. Hosted by Ronda Blevins
