Review of Pros and Cons
The intention is to select a time that will have the lowest impact on the campus community.
What would be useful for faculty as we prepare to make this transition?
- Playposit Demonstration
Overview of Playposit
How would you like to see faculty using it?
How can we best communicate/reach faculty about Playposit?
Active Learning Spaces
Future Tour Opportunity
Would it be helpful to have speakers come talk with faculty about active learning spaces?
What percentage of our classrooms should be active learning spaces?
- Next Steps/Future Meeting(s)
We think it would be useful to hold the next meeting in an active learning classroom, such as 104 Tolley (possible meeting time/date shift). This would likely comprise the entire agenda.
Alternatively, we could discuss Blackboard Ultra Courses, Web Conferencing Tools, Video Services, Extended Reality (blended, augmented, virtual).
Guest Campus Speakers – Kal Srinivas (Retention and Student SUccess), others?
