Faculty Exchange Success Stories in E-Learning

Faculty Exchange Success Stories in E-Learning
Phil Rosenkrantz, professor of Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering, presents “Creating and Using Video Clips to Enhance Student Learning.”

To accommodate today's net generation, more and more Cal Poly Pomona professors are incorporating online teaching into their curriculum, from courses on Shakespeare to California history. This method of teaching requires an integration of technology such as streaming video and response pads.

More than 50 faculty members from various departments gathered for “Success Stories in E-Learning: A Faculty Symposium” on April 21 at Kellogg West.

The event was co-sponsored by the Faculty Center for Professional Development and Instructional & Information Technology (I&IT) Learning.  

Seventeen faculty members presented their ideas and experiences that focused on:

  • Rich Learning Experiences in an Online Course
  • Making Online Courses Come Alive
  • Curriculum Connections Through E-Learning
  • Preparing Students to Learn with Pre-Class Quizzes
  • Encouraging Student Class Participating with Technology Tools
  • Lessons Learned in the Technology-Enhanced Classroom
  • Enhancing the Classroom with “Real-World” Examples
  • Peer-Reviewed Writing Assignments:  The CPR Approach
  • Dynamic Online Presentations Using Streaming Video

The keynote speaker, Paul Adalian, dean of library at CSU Channel Islands, showcased the work of faculty in integrating technology and information literacy into the curriculum and developing customizable databases, digitalcollections and electronic software.

“I enjoyed the symposium and can't wait to begin implementing some of the shared ideas,” said Devon Hackelton, a faculty presenter in the English & Foreign Languages department. “Hopefully, this will be the first of a long line of annual meetings.”
