Each month, I host two events for VoiceThread’s higher education community: a webinar and an online office hour.  The events are geared towards showcasing effective practices of VoiceThread in college learning and providing assistance to educators who are teaching with VoiceThread (or want to learn how).  Recently, we moved the office hour event to Google+ Hangouts!

September 2012 Higher Ed VoiceThread Events:

Diversifying Instruction in Large Lecture Classes with VoiceThread

Friday, September 14th, 2012

This webinar will feature the teaching innovations of 
Ginger Shultz, 
Lecturer of Chemistry
at the University of Michigan
Many instructors struggle to understand how to use collaborative technologies to support large, lecture-based classes. In this webinar, you will learn how Ginger Shultz employs VoiceThread in an organic chemistry laboratory course that enrolls 350-850 students. Ginger will discuss how her use of VoiceThread has enabled her to foster greater community in her face-to-face classroom, as well as unveil the unique learner perspectives that often get lost in large classes. These outcomes allow Ginger to understand the flow of her students learning and make shifts in her instruction, as needed.

Hangout with Michelle and the VoiceThread Team

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

3:00 PDT/ 6:00 EDT

I use Google+ Hangouts on Air to engage in live online learning sessions with 
college educators who have questions about how to teach with VoiceThread. 
Bring your questions and topics for discussion!  
Up to 10 participants (including me!) can participate in a live Hangout but an 
unlimited number may view the streaming video on my blog here.
