Seats remaining:5
Presented by:
Ben Duerr

Description:
Different types of educational experiences exist - from hands- on apprenticeships to role-playing, from demonstrations to reading printed text. Some educators believe that different experiences are more or less effective for achieving different types of instructional outcomes. For example, text with pictures is not as effective as live demonstrations for teaching motor skills. Instructors who are considering the use of media should ask themselves, “How do I expect the media or type of learning activity to make learning more effective?”

Managing Students, AB 137
Seats remaining:5
Presented by:
Jim Lynch

Description:
If there can be one characterization of MVCC students, it is their diversity. Race, religion, disability, sexual preference, academic entry level, aptitude, socio-economic status, age, and marital status are all factors that impact how a student learns. Your expectations, goals, and teaching style are based on your experiences, which might be quite different from those of your students. Understanding the various learning preferences of students and the differences between you and your students and among your students can help you plan your course to take advantage of the diverse population at MVCC rather than letting it be an obstacle to student learning.

Effective Lectures, AB 137
Seats remaining:6
Presented by:

Yet, how well a story is told is dependent upon the quality of the delivery.

Hybrid Overview, AB 137
Seats remaining:5
Presented by:
Jim Lynch

Description:
MVCC defines a hybrid course as a course in which typically is offered in a 50/50 division between online and in class or in the field (there is opportunity for other models to be developed based on course design). Hybrid models vary depending on instructor goals, but they typically allow for more flexible scheduling for students, faculty, and classroom resources. Research demonstrates that hybrid course design can increase flexibility for students and can make class time more engaging for both faculty and students.

Technology in the Classroom, AB 137
Seats remaining:6
Presented by:
Norma Chrisman

Description:
Different types of educational experiences exist - from hands- on apprenticeships to role-playing, from demonstrations to reading printed text. Some educators believe that different experiences are more or less effective for achieving different types of instructional outcomes. For example, text with pictures is not as effective as live demonstrations for teaching motor skills. Instructors who are considering the use of media should ask themselves, “How do I expect the media or type of learning activity to make learning more effective?”

Hybrid Overview, AB 137
Seats remaining:6
Presented by:
Jim Lynch

Description:
MVCC defines a hybrid course as a course in which typically is offered in a 50/50 division between online and in class or in the field (there is opportunity for other models to be developed based on course design). Hybrid models vary depending on instructor goals, but they typically allow for more flexible scheduling for students, faculty, and classroom resources. Research demonstrates that hybrid course design can increase flexibility for students and can make class time more engaging for both faculty and students.

Managing Students, AB 137
Seats remaining:6
Presented by:
Jim Lynch

Description:
If there can be one characterization of MVCC students, it is their diversity. Race, religion, disability, sexual preference, academic entry level, aptitude, socio-economic status, age, and marital status are all factors that impact how a student learns. Your expectations, goals, and teaching style are based on your experiences, which might be quite different from those of your students. Understanding the various learning preferences of students and the differences between you and your students and among your students can help you plan your course to take advantage of the diverse population at MVCC rather than letting it be an obstacle to student learning.

Effective Lectures, AB 137
Seats remaining:6
Presented by:
Jim Lynch

Description:
Lectures are comprised of two components: Content and Delivery. Both components are essential for creating an interesting lecture. If the beginning of a lecture captures your attention, the middle builds suspense or intrigue as the lecture unfolds, and the end forms a resolution, you have a lecture in story form – the age-old method for passing on information. Yet, how well a story is told is dependent upon the quality of the delivery.
