Teaching Naked: Technology and E-Communication for Student Engagement - Free online workshop

Here is a 90 minute workshop offered by Wiley Learning Institute. It is led by José Bowen, author of the book "Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your College Classroom Will Improve Student Learning"

Face-to-face (naked) interaction between faculty and students remains our most precious and expensive teaching technique, so the most important benefits to using technology occur outside of the classroom. Technology provides new ways for students to receive first contact with material and instead use class time for interactions that can spark more critical thinking. But e-communication technology also offers many new opportunities to connect with students digitally and advance student learning. Give students more opportunities to write. Provide more feedback and more chances for students to connect with material. Lower the stakes and raise standards with micro tests. This workshop is focused on student engagement to prepare for class.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Develop an e-Communication policy
  • Investigate why, when and how to use e-Communication
  • Examine how podcasts and online content can transform student preparation
  • Analyze the ease and benefits of online exams before every class
