Computerized Exams—To Be or Not to Be?
Thursday, September 30, 2– 3:30pm

As it becomes more convenient and commonplace to take advanced exams (like GMAT, CPA, etc.) online, it is important that we teach our students how to approach them with confidence. This workshop will explain the importance of computerized exams and their benefits to students and professors, as well as the challenges they pose. The session will include “best practice” ideas the facilitator has gathered over the years.

Innovating with Wikis, Blogs, and Technology to Enrich, Engage, and Extend the Student Experience
Tuesday, November 2, 2:00-3:30pm

We will consider technologies available in the university classroom and explore how they create opportunities for innovative approaches to learning. Wikis, blogs, and other technologies can remove time and space constraints, enabling students to collaborate outside the classroom. The technologies also allow for the participation of additional external resources with minimal cost and effort, and empower individuals to tailor courses to their own learning style.

Tuesday, November 16, 1– 2:30pm
