An opportunity from the Twin Cities Campus for Duluth faculty, staff and
Educational Technology Workshop
The Educational Technology Workshop (ETW) is a six-week certificate program
that explores emerging web tools and pedagogies. We’ll explore methods for
researching, publishing, collaborating, annotating, and establishing social
presence using tools like blogs, wikis, reference managers, iTunesU,
annotation tools, and more. A partnership between the Office of Information
Technology and the University Libraries, the ETW will blend instructor
presentations with collaborative problem solving. The ETW is open to
faculty, staff, and graduate students on all University of Minnesota
The advent of a rapidly expanding set of Web tools challenges us to
understand each new application’s potential for enhancing learning and
research. Many of these tools are designed for interactions in a group
setting, so the ETW presents us with an opportunity to explore them
together. Participants will have a chance to interact with the tools in a
group setting and discuss what opportunities and challenges each presents.
In fall 2011, the ETW will meet once a week on Thursday mornings from 10:00
a.m. to noon over six weeks, October 13 – November 17. We ask that you
participate in all sessions. You can attend in person at 210 Walter Library,
or by a virtual connection from a remote location, including coordinate
campuses. (Virtual participation “seats” are limited and first consideration
will go to those from coordinate campuses.) We recommend that people on the
Minneapolis campus participate in person. Most of the work will occur during
the workshop, though participants will be encouraged to continue their
explorations between sessions. Note that those participating virtually are
also asked to participate in an approximately half-hour preparation session
on October 6.
- To experience a suite of both centrally supported and freely available
cloud-based tools that can support teaching and learning.
- To develop a flexible method for exploring and evaluating the utility
of new technologies to enhance teaching and learning environments and become
aware of University policy issues and support structures.
Please join us this semester. Registration is now open at
