EdTECx in action – Book now
by Olivia Jackman, IT Services.
EdTECx in action is in its third year and in tandem with EdTECx talks (which takes place in Spring), it is becoming a fixture in the UCD calendar. This year EdTECx in action includes a series of 19 workshops and demonstrations featuring UCD educational technologies and is designed for staff with all levels of experience.
Since its inception the EdTECx series (talks and in action) has proved to be an excellent way of introducing and showcasing technologies for teaching & learning. EdTECx in action is a community event delivered jointly by UCD Teaching and Learning & UCD IT Services in conjunction with the School based network of Educational Technologists. It is a great opportunity to meet other colleagues and share best practice. The hands-on workshops and demonstrations provide a chance to experience the technology, learn from others and get the answers to any questions you may have. This year it will take place in the Daedalus building from Monday 28th August to Thursday 31st August and workshops include Blackboard, Collaborate Ultra, WebPA, Quizdom, Echo 360 Personal Capture and much more.
If you are new to UCD, come along and find out about the various educational technologies on offer. Currently there are spaces still left on workshops for Blackboard, Google Drive, Collaborate Virtual Classroom, Articulate Storyline, Integrating Audio, Linking Library Resources, WebPA for Peer Assessment and Universal Design. See the UCD EdTECx in action website for a full schedule and further information. We look forward to seeing you there.
