 Writers and Their Tools: How to Help College Writers Select the Best Technology for the Job by Dr. Shannon Carter
Type:  On-Demand Video
Date: 
Time:  Self Paced
Location:  Online
Presenter:  Dr. Shannon Carter
Description:  (*video recorded session on 9/29/2014) From cave paintings to clay tablets and typewriters to new media, technological advances are constantly changing the way writers write. Today, students have so many choices as writers they often don't know where to begin. The purpose of this workshop is to help our writing students think more strategically about the "affordances" (Cynthia Selfe) of various technologies in order to choose the best ones available for the job. In this hands-on workshop, participants will explore various roles played by a writer's tools by experimenting with materials rarely associated with writers and readers in academic contexts: clay. We'll begin with a brief discussion of the important ways new technologies have affected the way writers write throughout time. How did writers approach a writing task when the only tools available were clay tablets? How about later as paper became more cheaply and widely available? How did the invention of the typewriter change things, not to mention the pencil, ballpoint pens, correction tape, White Out? Together we will experiment with a variety rhetorical situations and a range of likely unfamiliar tools (including clay!), then discuss their impact on the resulting composition and the composing process itself. In addition to experiencing this classroom activity, participants will come away from the workshop with teaching notes for this activity, including a sample handout for students. For more information, refer to Dr. Shannon Carter's Faculty Profile Page.

 Writing Effective Learning Outcomes
Type:  Multimedia
Date: 
Time:  Self Paced
Location:  Online
Presenter:  Atomic Learning
Description:  In education today, we may find chapter outcomes in our text books and course outcomes in our syllabus, but do we think about what our true goals are for our students each and every class? This online learning module outlines why we need solid, measurable, and scaffolded outcomes at every level of our teaching. We break down the parts of a well written outcome. We will also demonstrate how to easily write outcomes for every level: program, course, module, using University of Central Florida's Online Objective Builder. Finally, we will talk about assessment and program improvement based on assessment. This short module can markedly improve your teaching and student performance by helping you communicate to your students what the target is and how to achieve a higher score.
