Successful teaching with technology aligns with overarching course goals, engages learners and enhances their learning experience. This workshop will shed a pedagogical light on various educational technology tools and how participants can use them for purposes such as student engagement, interaction and content creation. The workshop will also include a hands-on component on the showcased tools based on participants’ needs.

Facilitator: Gihan Osman (GSE/CLT)

Have you ever dreamed that your students could get excited about assessments? Digital tools might enhance the possibilities of making this happen. Research and practice on using digital tools for formative and authentic assessment suggest that technology can add immediacy, efficiency, effectiveness and engagement to the assessment process. The workshop will show how that can happen, discuss challenges, provide strategies for ensuring the success of your endeavor, and provide examples from AUC and beyond.

Facilitators: Maha Bali (CLT) and Nadine Aboulmagd (CLT)

Digital literacy has become essential to developing 21st-century lifelong learners and citizens of tomorrow. The affordances of online and collaborative tools and social media allow teachers to expand beyond the space-time borders of the class and offer opportunities for collaborative learning and global communication. In this interactive workshop participants will explore the main differences between digital skills and digital literacies, and discuss how to enhance students’ digital literacies when integrating educational technology.
