INA, Ill. – Grab your laptop, tablet, or smartphone and come to Rend Lake College for a free “Technology in the Classroom” workshop designed to help school administration and faculty interact with their students through flipped instruction.
Dr. Jeannie Justice, CORD (Center for Occupational Research and Development) Trainer and instructor of Educational Technology and Leadership at Morehead State University in Morehead, Ky., will speak about technology in the classroom from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Friday, June 5, in the Academic Building, Room 215, on the Ina campus.
School administrators and faculty are invited to from Justice learn about flipped instruction, a trend in education that is helping prepare students for a deeper understanding of content with increased collaborative and problem-solving skills. Technology plays a key role in flipped instruction due to the amount and quality of tools to help instructors increase interaction and communication.
This hands-on workshop will also feature several tools specifically geared toward function and usability in the classroom, such as recording features for lectures, communication through technology, back channel, interactive classes, and gamification of lessons. Participants will also learn about creativity with technology, collaboration and group projects, cooperative organization, and the positives and negatives of flipping instruction.
Attendees can earn 7 CPDUs or 0.5 credit hours for attending the workshop. Lunch will also be provided. Registration is due for the session by Friday, May 29. To register or for more information, contact RLC’s Community and Corporate Education Division at 618-437-5321, Ext. 1267 or 1714, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
