Supplement Classroom Learning with Screen Capture Software

MARK YOUR CALENDAR! Join us to view this webinar by Dr. Dave Yearwood, who has conducted numerous workshops for college faculty at the national and international levels. Associate Professor and Chair of the Technology Department at the University of North Dakota, Dr. Yearwood’s research interests focus on ways faculty members can infuse presentations and other technologies into coursework to connect and engage students, enhance understanding, and promote dialogue leading to critical examination of course content. According to the program…
Instructional technology can–and should–be changing the way college faculty conduct classes. Today, students can access course information remotely, around the clock. Are faculty members at your institution taking full advantage of this fact? If not, it may be time for a skills upgrade. Even the most talented faculty need help to stay current with the latest advances in instructional technology. The growing availability of portable multimedia devices and the proliferation of Course Management Systems make the time right for college instructors to begin to integrate audio and video teaching and learning modules to create more engaging–and more effective–courses.
