Faculty in Focus

Instructional Technology Services asked a number of faculty members about how they implementing educational technology in their classrooms.

The resulting "Faculty in Focus" videos shine a spotlight on how UIW faculty members are employing applications to engage their students. Instructors describe how they use the software in the classroom, along with a synopsis of their results.

Incorporating games and self-generated videos, instructors share how the utilities leverage teaching time and enhance outcomes.

Topics covered:

Tim Griesdorn, PhD, inspired by a TED talk, added gamification principles to his classes.
