Center for Teaching Excellence, Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511
Do you teach or plan to teach in a clinical setting? Do you wonder how an Apple iPad can be used to enhance teaching and learning in settings that include the facilities and resources of the profession, or takes place in the context of providing a service to clients, patients or customers. This session will discuss strategies and apps for using iPads to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of teaching in these settings. The conversation will be facilitated by a panel of iPad Power Users, faculty who participated in the 2010 CTE cohort program: Using an iPad to Enhance Teaching and Learning. Each panelist will describe challenges she or he faced in clinical teaching, the apps and pedagogy that were explored, and what was learned in process. Bring your questions and ideas and join in an interactive discussion. An iPad will be available for attendees to test, and a light lunch will be provided.
Advanced registration is required. Please register by March 25, 2011 through the form below, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 803-777-8322.
