  Title:  01-Wa - Invited Workshop - Makerspaces & Advancing the Curriculum: Interactive Maker Projects
Fee: $25.00   Time: 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM Monday, Oct. 21   Room: D
 
Description:  In this introductory workshop, you’ll get hands-on experience seeing how educators can lead students to link interactive videos and other digital media to traditional physical models and pasteboard projects. Not only does this enhance the curriculum-based learning, but it creates the foundation for springboarding to coding, robotics, physical computing and computational thinking. Each participant will take home their own MakerBit project kit, which is based on the BBC micro:bit.

  Title:  01-Wc - A new reality: Developing augmented reality solutions for learning
 FULL - NA Fee: $15.00   Time: 8:30 AM - 3:50 PM Monday, Oct. 21   Room: F
 
Description:  Recent research suggests that augmented reality (AR) as an educational technology can improve learning in ways that previously had not been possible. However, most educational professionals do not fully understand how AR technologies work, nor how to incorporate AR into their instructional practices. In this workshop, participants will learn how about the learning potential of AR and how educators can create and integrate the technology into their own teaching practices.

  Title:  01-Wd - Invited Workshop - Creating Applications to Help Learners Develop Inquiry and Critical Thinking Skills
Fee: $5.00   Time: 8:30 AM - 3:50 PM Monday, Oct. 21   Room: G
 
Description:  This is a hands-on workshop that presents a pedagogical framework for teaching inquiry and critical thinking skills (ranging from observing something unusual to developing an explanation after considering alternatives, testing the explanation, revisiting assumptions, and refining the explanation after analyzing additional evidence). An authoring framework and examples will be demonstrated and the workshop will conclude with those participating creating and sharing an additional example. Copies of a paper describing the framework. Authoring environment and pedagogical approach will be given to participants. Participants should bring a laptop computer.

  Title:  01-We - 5 Star Course Design: Hands on Evaluation & Re-Design for Educational Transformation
Fee: $15.00   Time: 8:30 AM - 3:50 PM Monday, Oct. 21   Room: CR-1
 
Description:  Learn to evaluate your existing course and redesign a new course using Merrill’s First Principles of Instruction. We teach participants the 5 Star process, then based on workshop evaluations they will redesign their own course. Keen participants will leave with completed design documents, confidently prepared to tackle redevelopment tasks. Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops and/or printed syllabi of the course they want to improve and/or redesign.

  Title:  01-Wf - A primer on the application of meta-analysis to educational technology research: Examples using open-source software
Fee: $15.00   Time: 8:30 AM - 3:50 PM Monday, Oct. 21   Room: CR-4
 
Description:  This workshop is designed to gently introduce the meta-analysis research method using datasets from the field of educational technology in a friendly and interactive environment. The workshop focuses on the conceptual knowledge for conducting a meta-analysis using the open-source JASP software, instead of focusing on the mathematical equations. Participants will explore existing datasets to learn fundamental statistical concepts and their interpretation. Participants are encouraged to bring ideas for conducting their own meta-analysis for discussion.

  Title:  01-Wg - Design Thinking for Instructional Designers
Fee: $15.00   Time: 8:30 AM - 3:50 PM Monday, Oct. 21   Room: CR-5
 
Description:  This workshop will help attendees practice design thinking processes as applied to instructional design contexts. It will be an inspired educational experience, as participants learn practical skills for solving problems in a manner that is more flexible than typically available through common instructional design processes. Attendees will be able to apply these skills in a variety of circumstances, and will develop confidence that they can cope with unpredictable situations that may arise in their work.

  Title:  04-Wa - Invited Workshop - Computationally-enabled devices in an Everyday World of the Student
Fee: $25.00   Time: 1:00 PM - 3:50 PM Monday, Oct. 21   Room: D
 
Description:  This workshop presents a sampling of common devices that students interact with every day, from traffic lights to remote controlled vehicles, and thus introduces physical computing and computational thinking. Learn, as a student would, how a micro-controller can be programmed with a simple block language, and how even the simplest device opens the door to deeper challenges. Each participant will take home their own MakerBit project kit, which is based on the BBC micro:bit.

  Title:  04-Wb - Considering the characteristics of your online learner - Evaluating Online Learning Course Designs
 FULL - NA Fee: $15.00   Time: 1:00 PM - 3:50 PM Monday, Oct. 21   Room: CR-2
 
Description:  This workshop will allow participants to use research methods to evaluate learning journeys in an online course. It allows participants to assume the persona of a student and map how they would access online course materials in an online learning environment. This method can be used to inform participants of students behavior within an online course thus further guiding a participant to review how online environments are designed for functional use and inevitably learning
