Brown Presents Digital Literacy Workshop for Teaching Center

Journalism Professor Dr. Sybril Brown presented on “Engaged Teaching: Using Digital Tools in Digital Times” for a Teaching Center Workshop Wednesday. She covered Canva, Powtoons, iMovie Trailers, Videolicious and more. The workshop was part of a series created by Brown along with Teaching Center Director Mike Pinter last summer designed as a collaborative effort to provide technological resources for faculty.

Closely connected to the series listed above are two sessions that were offered as part of The August 2015 Teaching Center Workshops initiated the series concept with two sessions, one by Brown titled “I See Opportunities: Tech Tools in the Classroom” and another co-presented by Aimee Cabrera (Instructional Technology) and Dr. Lorry Liotta-Kleinfeld (Occupational Therapy) on “Tools and Ideas to Support Online Teaching.”

The Digital Literacy series then kicked off in the fall with a September presentation on “Using Infographic Assignments Across Disciplines” by Dr. Joel Overall, assistant professor of English. Dr. Kevin Trowbridge, assistant professor of public relations, followed up in November with “Beyond the Little Blue Bird: Using Twitter to Extend the Classroom.”

Another session is still to come this semester. On Wed., March 30, Bunch Library’s Courtney Fuson and Claire Wiley will offer a session on “Altmetrics and Managing Your Online Identity as a Researcher.”
