The second annual Teaching Excellence Workshop (TEW) is scheduled for March 29, from 11:30am-4:30pm, in Smathers Library, Room 1-A. Virtual attendance is also available through Adobe Connect. Pre-registration for either in-person or online attendance is required.
Daphne Koller, co-founder of Coursera, will share her perspective on the evolution of the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and the future of higher education. Samples of courses offered through the UF-Coursera partnership will also be presented and discussed. UF’s Coursera development team will provide insight into how MOOCs work and what is being learned through the launch and pilot of four courses. The 2013 TEW will also showcase how faculty are using innovative technologies to enhance on-site courses, develop fully-online courses for students in residence, and used in courses offered in fully-online programs.
A full workshop agenda is available online.
The workshop is free and open to all UF faculty, affiliate faculty, and teaching assistants. Lunch will be provided to onsite attendees. The Teaching Excellence Workshops are proudly co-presented by the Office of the Associate Provost for Teaching and Technology and UF Information Technology.
