Making the Transparent Apparent: Engaging All Students with the Online Learning Process
Did you miss the presentation by Marc Boots-Ebenfield at the CCRI IT Faculty Technology Day on January 9? Participants enthused that it was an excellent session and was useful for all faculty, not only those teaching online courses. Sponsored by a grant from the CCRI Foundation, Boots-Ebenfield’s keynote was recorded and the Centers for Instructional Technology (CIT) and the Center for Innovative Teaching, Learning, and Assessment (CITLA) are offering opportunities to view and discuss it on all campuses in the distance learning rooms on March 5, 6 and 7.

CITLA Spring Book Club
This spring CITLA will host a book club to discuss Teaching First-Year College Students written by Erickson et al. Published in 2006, the book draws on the research and theory of learning, but its emphasis is on the practical application of these insights in the classroom. We’ll read and discuss the book in sections on the Lincoln and Warwick campuses. Please see the schedule below and please plan to join us for one or all of the discussions. Click here to register.
