SITT 2023 - Using technology to foster a class learning community by Mark Verbitsky
From Margaret Merrill
I will begin the workshop by presenting a pedagogical framework for understanding the social, emotional, and intellectual benefits of building a class learning community. I will then present some of the technological tools I have been using to foster a class community (e.g. Discord, Perusall, Canvas peer review), sharing my own experience and reviews from students. I hope to involve the audience throughout, with fellow instructors sharing their own ideas and experiences with learning communities inside and outside of the classroom.
