Academy Home > Events > Fall 2010 Conversations on Teaching
The Purdue University Teaching Academy has announced two upcoming Conversations on Teaching sessions. These sessions are designed to address timely issues relative to learning and the classroom, delivered by various members of the Purdue University faculty. The spring Conversations include:
November 17, 2010 from 3:30 to 4:45 pm in SC 179
Hans Aagard and Chuck Calahan will present “A Sharing Discussion of the Most Productive and Creative Applications of Hotseat.”
Hotseat is a social networking-powered mobile Web application that has potential to engage significant numbers of your students in discussion while actually in or even outside of the classroom. Hotseat provides the opportunity for students to ask the types of questions they would like to ask but perhaps are reluctant to ask in class. With anonymity, your students can address controversial topics or share a personal issue or struggle to solve a problem. This will be an open discussion, including opportunity for hands on participation, relating to what works well, what does not work, and what may have potential to work for you in using Hotseat.
The Conversations on Teaching sessions do not require registration. So please come and join us for these engaging sessions.
