Engaged technology and experiential learning: iPads, digital microscopy, and Internet freeware in the creation of lab Atlas projects. [Event Flyer]
Presented by: Todd C. Shoepe, Assistant Clinical Professor, Health and Human Sciences
Abstract: Self-paced project-based learning is an effective method of instruction that engages students in personal, constructed experiences. We will discuss one example of this approach where students create personalized photographic anatomical atlases by the acquisition of specimen images taken with iPads and digital microscope cameras, complete knowledge-construction activities, journal them in Blackboard blog spaces for instructor feedback, and then compile them into a digital book using Internet publishing freeware (bookemon.com). Results of a research investigation will be included. The initiation of this project was supported through the HAPS Faculty Research Award, 2011.
Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or x85866.
