This 2-hour interactive workshop focuses on ways to use Twitter with your students to help them further engage with course materials, concepts, and one another. We will discuss the common misconceptions about Millennial-age students and their use of social media as well as the very real perils of professors facing censure for their own use of social media, and use those fears and myths to examine what it is that social media, specifically Twitter, can offer students and professors in the liberal arts classroom. Through exercises, brainstorming, strategies, and analysis of case studies and existing assignments, participants in this workshop will leave with a better sense of where, how, and why Twitter might help students engage more deeply with learning.
I had the pleasure of facilitating this workshop at Swarthmore College on 4/5/17 with lovely, engaged colleagues working and thinking about student digital engagement.
Feedback from participants includes this Twitter gem (and look for #TYPSwat session-specific hashtag):
