The George Washington University (GW) had a vision to create a patient-centered nursing program that would attract the best students and shape leaders in their specialty. In response to this need, GW’s Academic Technologies department designed a state-of-the-art simulation lab, offering mock emergency, hospital and wellness rooms that provide real-life environments for hands-on student learning. 

Leaders and instructors at the nursing school knew there was more they could do to extend learning from the classroom to the bedside and beyond. Watch this webinar to discover groundbreaking ways GW has combined technology with pedagogy to become one of the most innovative nursing programs in the nation. 

In this day and age, it takes a lot to teach without technology. So says Harriette Spiegel, Instructional Technologist, UT Martin. In her role of supporting and training instructors to leverage technologies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) courses, she’s discovered how using on-demand replay to spur active learning makes it easier for instructors to teach and students to learn the complex content found in these challenging fields of study.

Join the panel from UT Martin for this free, 60-minute online event and learn the many advantages of incorporating lecture capture and active learning technology into STEM courses, including:

  • How to generate excitement among instructors and create student demand

  • How active learning can spark students’ passion for STEM

  • How to best use recorded content pedagogically

  • How to creatively use captured content for peer mentoring, distance courses, and student review

  • How lecture capture technology makes flipping the classroom and creating supplemental course material simple and stress-free

 

Researchers from UT Austin, 2010 grant recipients through Echo360’s Blended Learning Grants Program, share the results of their study on flipping large enrollment classrooms. Learn the four key components to successfully inverting the classroom that were revealed during the course of their research.

Always on the forefront of education and research, University College London boasts one of the world’s most sophisticated e-learning strategies and learning environments.

Some institutions are offering online courses for distance students, flipping the classroom to make class time more interactive, and recording instructional material to help students review difficult content. These institutions are becoming evermore competitive – able to recruit and retain valuable students while growing educational programs. How do these institutions do it? Where did they start? What technologies support these methodologies?

Watch this webinar and hear from two technology professionals who hold the keys to successful implementations of blended learning technologies to create a more active teaching and learning experience.

A webinar event that describes how students at the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine consume complex concepts with some help from lecture capture and a student engagement system.

Let's face it - the typical health sciences curriculum is very difficult. Courses cover a multitude of important topics, and classes tend to be chock full of content. Most students leave lectures recalling only a portion of what was taught in class. Constantly on the mission to make learning more effective for their students and create a better graduate, the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University looked to active learning technologies to enhance the teaching and learning process.

Alphacrucis College and Australian College of Applied Psychology share how technology choices sparked a teaching and learning transformation

Some institutions are offering online courses for distance students, flipping the classroom to make class time more interactive, and recording instructional material to help students review difficult content. These institutions are becoming evermore competitive – able to recruit and retain valuable students while growing educational programs. How do these institutions do it? Where did they start? What technologies support these methodologies?

Watch this webinar and hear from two technology professionals who hold the keys to successful implementations of blended learning technologies to create a more active teaching and learning experience.

A webinar event that describes how students at the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine consume complex concepts with some help from lecture capture and a student engagement system.

Let's face it - the typical health sciences curriculum is very difficult. Courses cover a multitude of important topics, and classes tend to be chock full of content. Most students leave lectures recalling only a portion of what was taught in class. Constantly on the mission to make learning more effective for their students and create a better graduate, the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University looked to active learning technologies to enhance the teaching and learning process.

Vince Kellen, CIO of the University of Kentucky, explores the most up-to-date technology trends including MOOCs in this must-see webinar. This webinar provides key insights into successfully navigating the technology landscape and selecting the right solution for your institution - from the unique perspective of a leading CIO.
