Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Feb 2, 2018
suite 309, DeWitt Wallace Library

Paul Cantrell, Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, will present “Handling Screen Time During Class Time."  Should we allow laptops in class?  Despite the temptation, there is good reason not to ban screens outright: they are indispensable for many students with disabilities, and all of us need to develop the skill of remaining engaged with our fellow humans even in the presence of technology.  I will share what I have learned from teaching computer science classes in which screens are a necessity. This includes practical classroom tactics as well as philosophical strategies for framing the problem in ways that protect both student learning and teacher sanity. Bring your own doubts, hopes, and strategies to share.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
