From TLT Group World Headquarters

Tomorrow, Nov. 11, we celebrate the Teaching, Learning, Technology Roundtable's birthday - 17th!  Many institutions still employ some form of a TLTR, and find it one of the most effective ways to manage technological change. In case you didn’t know about TLTRs or need a refresher, here are some resources you might find useful:

"Assessment" still a dirty word? Is it: A) Decisive, B) Confirming/Refuting, C) Acclaiming, D) Appeasing, E) Wasteful?


Wading into Online Teaching
Converting a successful face-to-face class into a successful online class by paying attention to research and embracing mistakes

This Friday, Nov. 11, at 2:00pm ET

Guest: Jennifer McKrickerd, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Drake University

A discussion of the fear and trembling frequently associated with starting something new and ways to think about new ventures that can decrease the anxiety and increase enthusiasm.  Using the decision to teach an on-line class in an upcoming term as an example of moving out of one’s comfort zone, the presenter will discuss how she is using her knowledge of learning theory and experience teaching face-to-face classes to think about teaching on-line and how she is using her understanding of students’ vulnerability in the classroom to address her own insecurities about moving out of the classroom.  Participants can expect some ideas about how to deal with related issues in their own teaching and also to share their own experiences and insights to help others.
