    W2: Implementing Open Educational Resources: Tips & Tricks
    Emese Felvegi , Ariana Santiago & Robert McCarn
    When costly commercial content is replaced with Open Educational Resources (OER), a barrier to participating in education is removed. In this workshop, an OER Coordinator, an undergraduate mass section faculty member, and an undergraduate student and academic support assistant offer tips, tricks, and walkthroughs to engage with OER. The presenters will describe possible avenues with OER, specific changes that can be made to coursework over time, then invite participants to find or map out the creation of their OER during the workshop. The presenters share their selection criteria for open data, open textbooks, and open assignments. Tools will be shared with and used by participants to systematically map out learning objectives from existing publisher content onto free resources, to develop assessment and evaluation questions, and deploy them through LMS.

    W3: Thirteen Suggestions for Writing Engaging, Relevant, and Validated Questions
    One of the most challenging parts of designing an asynchronous e-learning program is writing questions that foster interaction and assess learning. Part of the problem results from the limited ability of computers to process responses to questions (even with all of their sophisticated capabilities). Most of the software for creating e-learning programs limits questions to those that can be easily processed: true/false, multiple choice, drag-and-drop, and fill-in-the-blank. But perhaps part of the problem is that e-learning designers let these mechanics of questioning interfere with the conceptualization of question. Starting that process of reconceptualizing questions is the purpose of this interactive workshop. It begins with opportunities to address challenges in writing test questions. Those challenges become a springboard to exploring specific suggestions for writing engaging, relevant, and validated questions.

    W4: A Dream Come True: A Technology Professional Learning Model that Promotes Teacher Buy-in, Voluntary Participation, and a Culture of Continuous Learning
    School leaders are challenged to implement effective technology professional development; however, recent professional development models designed to increase teachers’ technology use have been unsuccessful (Laferriére, Lamon, & Chan, 2006; Lawless & Pellegrino, 2007). In this BYOD, hands-on workshop, learn from researchers and practitioners to build a successful professional learning model unique to the participants’ setting and technology integration needs. Participants will glean insight into professional development gaps that include teachers’ technology adoption stage, self-efficacy, self-perceived barriers, and previous participation in PD: essential components that impact technology integration. They will leave with materials to establish baseline data to implement a viable program. With teacher buy-in, user-friendly resources, and support systems in place, successful technology integration whether it is for parent communication, testing, software application, Makerspace, or FABLAB integration, success is in sight!

    Welcome, General Session & Keynote: Katie Martin, AltSchool: Keynote: Katie Martin Learning, Teaching, and Leading in a Changing World
    Katie Martin
    The desire to change how students learn is often expressed as a goal but in the modern world, the teacher’s role must also evolve. This talk will focus on the characteristics of learner-centered experiences and how why we must ensure education sparks curiosity, ignites passion, and unleashs genius. If we embrace the role of the learner and the dynamic learning process, we can create experiences that empower learners to take ownership of their learning and reach their full potential.

    General Session & Keynote: Pedro De Bruyckere: Keynote: Urban Myths about E-learning and Education
    Pedro De Bruyckere
    To make sure technology rather helps than hinders learning, it is key to have a clear vision on what could work and what is a popular but debunked idea. In their book on urban myths about learning and education, Pedro De Bruyckere, Paul A. Kirschner and Casper Hulshof have been trying to perform a big clear-out. Sadly, one book was not enough as new myths keep popping up while old ones refuse to die, so a second book is forthcoming with again the same 3 labels: 'total nonsense‘, ‘nuanced' or 'we don’t know as research is lacking’. In his keynote Pedro De Bruyckere will both discuss the persistence of some popular myths in the science of e-learning based on new collected data and dispel some new relevant myths for the field.
