Teaching Science Labs at a Distance

Nov 09, 2012

Presented by:

  • Huseyin Dogan
  • Lisa Pohlman
  • Annelise Nguyen
  • Christopher Culbertson
  • Stefan Bossmann
  • C. Michael Smith
  • Michael Moore

The teaching of empirical science courses online has been constrained by the challenges of recreating “wet lab” experiences for online learners. Some universities partner with other institutions to offer local labs for learners; others request that learners arrange their own access for hands-on learning. Home labs are used in some curricular domains, which involve the uses of designed lab kits that are mailed to learners. Others use virtual simulations. Join us for this presentation, which will introduce seven K-State faculty members who have been delivering “wet lab” learning using a variety of strategies and tools.

Online lab providers will be available before and after the Roundtable to give demonstrations, discuss their resources, and answer your questions.

A Portal to New Media Literacy: Engaging new technologies to engage students

Oct 30, 2008

Presented by:

  • Michael Wesch, Assistant Professor - Sociology Anthropology & SocWk

It took tens of thousands of years for writing to emerge after humans spoke their first words. It took thousands more before the printing press and a few hundred again before the telegraph. Today a new medium of communication emerges every time somebody creates a new web application. A Flickr here, a Twitter there, and a new way of relating to others emerges. New types of conversation, argumentation, and collaboration are realized. What does this mean for building learning environments that can foster the kinds of communication and community we hope to create in higher education? In this presentation, Wesch will showcase and discuss his own attempts to create the portal of the future, integrating Facebook, Netvibes, Diigo, Google Apps, Jott, Twitter, 2D barcodes, and other emerging technologies to create a rich learning environment.
