Havener - Carver Turner room

Learn from colleagues about the latest tools and technologies faculty are using in the classroom to enhance teaching and learning. This event parallels the workshelp held in the fall of 2017, which was such a hit that we brought it back covering new tools. Amy Skyles presented about Twine, a "create your own adventure" tool. Dr. Beth Cudney shared ScoopIt, a content curation site; and Dr. Dan Reardon presented on how to modify online quizzes to improve objective assessment. Slides from the presentations can be found below.
