Faculty Discussion: Things We Wish That We Knew When We Went On-line For the First Time

Thinking about developing an on-line course? Wondering what you should know as you consider embarking down this path? Wouldn't it be nice to know what others who have gone down this road have learned, even as you take your first steps in this direction? A panel of four people, two who have created multiple on-line courses, two who have just finished creating their first, will discuss what they wished they knew from the get-go.

This discussion is as much about creating a sense of community for those who are new at this sort of thing as it is an opportunity to learn from the experience of others. Those who are yet to create an on-line class will be encouraged to ask questions and interact with each other and the panel as we form a community of learners.

Note, this discussion is not intended for those who are experts in on-line teaching, this one is for the rest of us. Bring your questions and concerns, and let’s see where things go.

This faculty panel discussion will be facilitated by Rob Sanford. Panel discussion participants also include: John Broida, Betty Robinson, & Libby Bischof.

FACULTY PANEL

Robert SanfordRob Sanford

I am chair of the department of Environmental Science and have been at USM since 1996. I’ve flirted with online courses in the past, but cowardice and laziness kept me from taking the full plunge until the summer of 2013, when I jumped in with both feet, teaching simultaneous online lecture and laboratory courses. Thanks to the mercy and kindness of more experienced colleagues and the USM Help Desk, my students and I did okay. I figure if done right, online teaching can be a real asset for students and the university, so if I can help others, it is worth it. I decided this workshop would be a good start and that there is no time to waste. Learn more about Rob.

 

Bischoff Libby Bischof 

I am an Associate Professor of History and have been at USM since 2007.  For the past few years I've been actively following the debates about various forms of online teaching and learning.  I frequently employ blackboard, blog, and social media assignments in my courses, and am very interested in digital humanities. This summer, partly as an experiment to see if I could deliver high quality content in an online setting, I decided to turn one of my face-to-face classes, a 300-level History of American Popular Culture, into an online course.  I found the experience to be rigorous and very rewarding.  I was able to work with a variety of students from USM and other colleges around the country as well as a few Maine high school teachers.  I am in the process of planning another 7-week online course, and welcome the chance to answer any questions about the pros and cons of converting a course from face to face to online, and the online teaching experience in general!
Learn more about Libby. View recent interview with Libby.

 

Betty Robinson

I began my online journey when I left the LAC Dean's office and signed up for a course offered fully online by my professional association.  So at least I had that experience going for me before I tried incorporating online teaching in my own practice.  Since then the CTEL folks have been my  "best friends," and I've surprised myself by becoming more adept than I expected to be in territory that did NOT come naturally.  I recover from mistakes far more easily than I once did and even explore new tech enhanced learning and teaching options on my own (knowing just whom to call when I get in over my head!). This was not my career plan, but increasingly, online is where I find my students due in large part to their busy lives. Learn more about Betty.

 

John Broida John Broida

John Broida, Associate Professor of Psychology and chair of the Psychology Department, is also active in the National Center for Academic Transformation. This group of technological innovators is involved in helping faculty find cost-effective ways to use technology. His interest in using technology and association with NCAT means that he is often approached by people interested in getting their products to innovators.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 18, 2013
1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.
