Teaching with Technology: Wikis, WordPress and More
Facilitators: Novak Rogic & Will Engle Description: Communication is a key component of successful teaching and technology can help create a dialogue both inside and outside of the classroom. This user-friendly session will provide a crash course on the CTLT’s online publishing framework.

Through the use of blogs, wikis, websites, groups, forums, and other technologies, you can empower your students and increase active learning. Best of all, these tools are all hosted, supported, and freely provided by the CTLT. This will be informal hands-on workshop with lively discussion and activities that focus on UBC supported technology that can enhance your learning and teaching environments.
