  • Global & International Studies Building (GISB) Classroom Orientation Workshop

    Thursday, May 12, 2016, 9:00am. Global & International Studies Building 1118. Instructors who are currently teaching in or are about to teach in a GISB classroom are invited to attend a GISB Classroom Orientation Workshop. In this GISB classroom orientation, participants will receive a brief tour of the room’s affordances and experience several of them through hands-on activities intended to provide a students’ perspective on their use. Participants will explore the white board walls, configurable furniture, and technology-rich environment that instructors can leverage for interactive lectures, a wide variety of student learning activities and assessments, and student collaboration and sharing. In the last hour, we will provide stations for instructors to visit for more in-depth exploration and questions. The event will occur on May 12, 9:00-11:00am in Global and International Studies Building room 1118. Please register here:
