EdTech Student Partners will collaborate with faculty to improve student engagement in the classroom. Through the semester, they will meet with faculty and observe their classes. Through these classroom observations, they will provide feedback and identify opportunities for development and ways technology might help. They will collaborate with faculty to learn different technology tools, help them to implement them in the course, and provide a student perspective. Meetings can be done in the faculty’s office, at CAT’s Instructional Technology Lab located in Room 110, or any other on-campus location that is agreed by you and the EdTech Partner.
Your first session with an EdTech Student Partner will be an “orientation” meeting, where you discuss your course (perhaps bring a copy of your syllabus), explain some of the goals you wish to accomplish or just brainstorm. You will then schedule a follow-up meeting with the same EdTech Student Partner, and may discuss class observation timings.
