Please join CTLT liaisons Allison Czapracki, Kenneth Warren, Jon Messer and Hil Scott for a new lunch series, “Pizza and Pedagogy.” They will be collaborating with UR faculty to facilitate conversations and explore topics about teaching with technology, and new Web 2.0 tools for classroom innovation, social media and privacy, and more. Find out what your UR colleagues are doing, and come share lessons learned and best practices over lunch!
Registration is required for each lunch so we know how much pizza to order.

Effective Student Presentations
Join the CTLT Liaisons and Linda Hobgood, director of the acclaimed Speech Center, in Wednesday’s lunchtime discussion about what makes an effective student presentation. Should class time be allotted for students to work on presentation skills? What would you tell your colleagues whose students are at risk of falling down the technology black hole when crafting their presentations? Share tips and gripes about student presentation techniques and styles with your fellow faculty.

Skype and Webconferencing
The CTLT liaisons will partner with faculty and staff who have used Skype or other videoconferencing tools in their teaching. If you’d like to see a videoconferencing demonstration or learn more about the educational uses of these tools or how the CTLT can help you implement them into your classrooms, don’t miss this interactive lunch.
