Held each year in March, CTE’s Educational Technologies Week is an opportunity for Waterloo’s instructors to focus more intensively on their teaching development and the technologies they use to promote deep learning.
In 2017, Educational Technologies Week drew 178 unique attendees (282 total completions) to 15 sessions such as Introduction to the Flipped Classroom, Twitter in the Classroom, Clickers and Reef Polling, Course Redesign for Blended Learning, and Enhancing Learning Through Gamification. Keynote speaker Donald Presant, President of Learning Agents and a leader in e-learning, kicked off the week with a presentation on micro-credentialling entitled “Recognizing Knowledge and Skills in a Digital Age.”
