Teaching with Technology showcased on Sep. 22

Tami Saj

The 2015-2016 Teaching with Technology projects have been focused on applying technology to team-based learning at Royal Roads. Amongst the nine projects reaching fruition are:

  • Lessons from the experiences of online teamwork with real clients in Royal Roads University master’s programs (i.e., experimenting with technologies for teamwork in existing courses and testing the assumption that RRU’s approach to PBL with real clients provides exceptional learning) – Alice MacGillvray, Amy Zidulka, and BJ Eib
  • Technology Enhancements to Enable Team Based Learning in the MBA Advanced Strategic Integrative Practice Course (i.e., piloting the use of new technology tools for brainstorming, concept mapping, sharing online resources and video conferencing) – Mike Thompson and David Stevenson
  • E-Portfolio Resources for Graduate Students (i.e., exploring uses of the e-portfolio concept to integrate and enhance students’ learning journey) – Wendy Rowe and Keith Webster
  • Increasing team efficiency and collaborative learning though social media microblogging (i.e., assessing the feasibility and effectiveness of using Twitter as a collaborative learning tool) – Chaseten Remillard, Ellen Pelto, Terry Nagel (SAIT)

All nine projects explore a significant range of online tools and facets of technology based learning important to the development of best practices in team based learning.
