New center to stress active learning, technology in course design - Cassie Lipp, News Record

In response to the University of Cincinnati’s emphasis on online and technology-based learning, the university will open its Center for Engagement in eLearning in the beginning of fall semester. The center’s design, technology and creative teams will allow faculty members to innovate learning. “We’ve got people who are professionals in graphic and video design and professionals in supporting faculty with technology,” said Pat Reid, director of the center’s design team. “So we can provide a lot more services and help the faculty with a more professional look to their courses.” Reid said the center’s main goal, however, is to help professors find more effective methods to engage students. “The pedagogy side of technology is more important than the technology they actually use,” Reid said. http://www.newsrecord.org/news/new-center-to-stress-active-learning-technology-in-course-design/article_a5259944-2d66-11e5-a2c7-eb0238a0d4bb.html
