Out with the Old, In with the New: Exploring Innovative and Interactive Pedagogy with New Media Tools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Course management tools (e.g., Blackboard) and 5 lb. textbooks are now things of the past as social media, e-learning, interactive technologies and online classes have become the norm. This panel will discuss the new media venues available to faculty and how best to utilize them when teaching mass communication courses. As YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other new platforms have increasingly become integrated into the lives of individuals both personally and professionally, faculty often struggle with the use and integration of these new methods of learning into their classes. In light of the current media landscape, we will also explore innovative classroom exercises and discuss the implications of using more technologically savvy pedagogical tools to keep content fresh and students engaged.
Panelists: Jo O’Connor, Boston University; The Stimulated Classroom
Mina Tsay, Boston University; The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts: Collaborative Learning in the Online Environment
Melissa Lee Price, Bucks New University; Everything I Need Fits in my Back Pocket
Dan Kimbrough, Misericordia University; Are WE Obsolete?
