Teaching w/Technology Tuesdays

The Collaborative Learning Center is offering a weekly program called Teaching w/ Technology Tuesdays. This program is for those teaching at Yale (staff, faculty, and students) interested in innovative instructional activities that utilize technology.

September 16: Facebook

Facebook is an online social networking website that was launched in 2004. The New Media Consortium’s 2008 Horizon Report designated Social Operating Systems, like Facebook, one of the 6 emerging technologies of 2008 likely to be widely implemented in educational contexts in the next 4-5 years. This session will orient you to the Facebook topography and showcase how it is being used by faculty and library instructors. Please come to our fall inaugural Teaching w/ Technology Tuesday, if you have ever wondered what all the fuss is about Facebook, or how it might be used for instruction.

When? Tuesday from 1:00 - 2:00pm

Where? Bass Library room L01 (lower level of the Bass Library)

Who? Robin Ladouceur, Instructional Design Specialist, will introduce Facebook. Michael Farina of the Italian Department and Geoffrey Little, Communications Coordinator in the Library, will demonstrate how they use Facebook for instructional purposes.
