On Friday, February 5th at noon, our distinguished colleague, Andy Albrecht, joined us as our featured guest and speaker at DOLCE, Discussing Online Learning and Collaborative Education.The Chair of the Department of Physics at UC Davis, Albrecht is well known in his field for his research into cosmology and dark energy. He will discussed his early forays into online instruction, and then helped us engage in a freewheeling discussion, prompted by my questions, on teaching, and teaching with technology. Andy also had stories to tell about the teaching accomplishments and challenges of his colleagues in Physics. Andy and I started chatting about such topics outside Mrak Hall after a December committee meeting, and I have remained eager to share Andy’s thoughts with a wider audience. You will find the conversation worth your time. We also had an update on our move towards Canvas as our new LMS (seehttp://movetocanvas.ucdavis.edu), and on the March 8th Audiovisual Showcase (see http://www.avshowcase.com).
