The Center for Instructional Technology invites you to our annual Instructional Technology Showcase highlighting outstanding work by Duke faculty over the past year. This year’s event will be held Friday, April 29th, with sessions running from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm in Perkins Library.
Sessions will include presentations from faculty representing a wide range of departments and programs at the University. The work of Humanities faculty will be highlighted in several of the sessions.
Joseph Harris, from the English Department and Raquel Salvatella de Prada from Art, Art History and Visual Studies and other faculty will discuss their experiences using WordPress in courses in a morning panel discussion. Denise K. Comer of the Thompson Writing Fellows Program and Deborah S. Reisinger from Romance Studies will discuss how they have used iPads with students.
Other sessions include a look at the Sakai pilot and a discussion of how Duke will be transitioning from Blackboard to Sakai over the next year along with a faculty perspective on the redesign of the Biology curriculum during the past few months.
The Library will also be contributing to the event with a session on our growing collection of eBooks and eReaders and how electronic books and devices are changing scholarship and teaching at Duke.
Mark Anthony Neal, Professor in African and African American Studies, will join with four other outstanding Duke faculty for an informal roundtable discussion on “Inspired teaching at Duke” and, earlier in the day, a group of Duke students will give their perspectives on how they use technology in their courses and everyday lives. If you have a question you would like to ask one of the panelists, you can send it to us via email.
We hope you can join us!
