Dear Faculty Colleagues,
I recently had the opportunity to chat with Joe Anistranski about teaching and technology for the Fall quarter 2019 AudioBlog entry.
Joe Anistranski, assistant professor of teaching in human ecology, teaches a wide-range of mostly high-enrollment courses on human development across the lifespan. In this interview, he shares his experience integrating technologies into the classroom to bring active learning and collaboration into his 250-student classes.
Our discussion covered a wide-range of topics:
- 21st century pedagogy and dynamic course content
- The value of active learning and collaboration
- Increased device ownership among students and consequences for teaching
- Dangers of a “coverage” pedagogy and Sir Ken Robinson
- Using Canvas to support the intersection between face-to-face teaching and online learning environments
- His October 4th DOLCE presentation on tautologies
- The importance of sharing our relevant personal experiences with students
I hope you enjoy our discussion!
