Technology and Teaching & Learning
Technology now offers an increasing number of intuitive, reliable, "ready for prime time" tools to help faculty excel in advancing the learning of their students. Using technology to help achieve your instructional outcomes can be manageable and rewarding.
This seminar is for all faculty - those using some technology, those exploring the variety of technologies now readily available, or those contemplating how these technologies might help them meet challenges they face daily. The presenter (an award-winning teacher recently featured in the Daily Trojan for his innovative use of Podcasts) will explore myriad ways of maximizing cutting edge technology. The program will include live connections to Russia and New Mexico, as well as demonstration of Prof. McKenna's use of video iPods.

Node Learning Technologies Network
The Node was established in 1996 as the Network for Ontario Distance Educators. Our initial objectives were to promote cooperation among distance educators in universities and community colleges in the province of Ontario, Canada and to provide leadership for their exploration of new learning technologies. Soon our work online attracted a much wider audience and in response, we built resources to support an international community of educators and trainers interested in understanding online learning technologies and harnessing their potential. Our website became a base of professional support and communication, with the Node providing independent research, online resources, professional discussion forums, and publications.
