Using Social Media Tools in Teaching and Learning
From twitter to blogging, social media platforms can be effective in the classroom: these tools can increase communication skills, student participation, help link classroom experiences to the real-world, and facilitate collaboration. This workshop is meant for any instructor at McGill, from TAs to lecturers and Professors.
The workshop will present guidelines around social media use in higher education, case-studies from McGill and beyond, and provide overviews of different social media tools and their uses. Workshop participants will take part in facilitated discussions about their own courses or lectures, and leave with concrete examples and ideas about ways to effectively integrate social media platforms into teaching and learning environments.
