Engaging students can be challenging especially in an online environment. Very often, technology is used as a delivery tool thus making learning one-directional. A recent survey by Duke-NUS found that many SingHealth educators would like to learn how to use technology to engage their learners.
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. Additionally, at this workshop, you will have the opportunity to reflect on your teaching practices and consider how technology can support you in creating an engaging learning environment.
You are expected to have access to your own laptop as there will be hands-on activities using technology tools.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
The target audience for this workshop is anyone interested in using technology tools to engage their learners. Ideally, workshop participants should have been actively teaching and have experience in course design and writing their learning outcomes.
