We started a community of higher education faculty members focused on sharing tips and tricks, research-based practices, and strategies for innovative use of educational technology in educator or leadership preparation programs.
This is a place where we build connectedness, share varied opinions, and bring together our knowledge about leveraging technology to support all students.
Network + Connect + Support

Faculty and EdTech Learning Opportunities

Orientation and Mobility faculty across two IHEs share thoughts on the current technology, knowledge, and skills needed for educators preparing to enter the field. Panelists will help participants think about how to design instruction so that learning extends beyond the technology used in the course and generalizes to varied instructional settings. Topics include the core pillars for instruction in orientation and mobility, designing orientation and mobility courses from a UDL lens, and barriers to teaching orientation and mobility virtually. The panelists will consider needs for both low and high tech devices and instruction in face to face and virtual settings. Towards the end of the webinar, panelists will identify intriguing or enticing opportunities in the orientation and mobility field and what participants should consider for the future. Register for this upcoming webinar.
