Forty-second issue, Volume four

TLT Group TGIF 10.25.2011                

From TLT Group World Headquarters In this period of rapid transition -  from teaching and supporting mostly on-campus courses to more online courses - consider Steve Gilbert's Fundamental Questions activity. The purpose of the activity is to identify key points of agreement and disagreement that will guide and limit progress on a project or innovation or improvement.  You'll need 15 - 20 minutes with a colleague or two to do the activity. Let us know what you learned!

Your support will help us ask this question:  How we can continue to improve teaching and learning with technology - carefully, responsibly, sensibly, cost-effectively, conscientiously, collaboratively, and respectfully?   

Your support will help us continue to provide some answers: Since 1998 we have worked with over 1000 colleges and universities in the United States and abroad. TLT Roundtables, Fundamental Questions, Brief Hybrid Workshops, LTAs, Compassionate Pioneers, TLT-SWG, Frugal Innovation and FridayLive! have all been successful contributions to making incremental improvements in teaching and learning - with technology.

Please support our engagement with college and university staff and faculty as they work to improve teaching and learning with technology.
