Educational Technology in the Classroom

Educational Technology in the Classroom


In the classroom, technology can encompass all kinds of tools from paper and pencil, to the use of presentation software, conferencing tools, and more. The logic is that technology is a tool that enhances the abilities of the instructor to convey a message when properly implemented in the classroom. This workshop will provide participants with a brief introduction into the pros and cons of educational technology and demonstrate its uses in the classroom.

Workshop Facilitators:

Chris Brue is fourth year PhD candidate in Chemistry studying metal-protein interactions in Alzheimer's Disease. He likes to find new ways of using technology in the classroom to represent challenging STEM concepts. This year he is a Searle Graduate Teaching Fellow and an organic chemistry teaching assistant.

Noran Mohamed is a fourth year graduate student in the department of French and Italian and current Graduate Teaching Fellow. Her work focuses on the relationship between narrative and death in various francophone novels. More specifically, in looking at the figure of the corpse, she examines the ways in which death and materiality disrupt narrative, both formally and thematically.
