The purpose of this workshop is to work with participants to design engaging learning activities using technology. Using a constructive alignment approach, you will first identify and align learning activities to the intended learning outcomes. It is important that there is alignment so that the activities facilitate students’ achievement of learning outcomes.

The next part of the workshop will focus on identifying some of the technology tools that can support the learning activities. This includes exploring tools for collaborative activities, whiteboarding, interactive polling and so on. This will depend on your needs, but the hands-on activity will provide you with some concrete examples that you can bring back to your future teaching sessions.

The workshop will serve as a starting point on your journey in using technology to enhance learning and to encourage you to further explore the tools on your own.
