I am preparing the upcoming newsletter for the AALS Teaching Methods section. I'd like to include section members' thoughts on the use of technology in the classroom (and I don't mean students' use of laptops to surf the internet rather than listen to the lecture!). If you have found the use of some technology (clickers, podcasts, webinars, course websites, etc.) has enhanced the teaching of your subject in some way, I'd love to hear about it.
I'll publish entries up to around 500 words or so. Let me know the subject you teach, where you teach, and how you've used technology to do any of the following: (1) make your job easier; (2) enhance the students' learning of the subject; (3) test the students' comprehension of the subject matter; (4) encourage collaborative or interactive learning; or (5) anything else I'm not thinking of.
I'd like to receive submissions no later than November 23rd.
Thanks in advance for your input!
