Many faculty are making greater use of the GTU's Moodle facilities, both in fully online courses, and in "regular" face-to-face courses. Some of us started by simply uploading additional readings, and have been gradually branching out into discussion forums, audio and video recordings, and using the functions that Moodle provides for grading and group work. Some of us have taken courses, either through the GTU library or outside organizations. But effective use of Moodle depends most of all on clear thinking about our teaching outcomes and objectives, rather than on simply using the "bells and whistles" correctly. All interested faculty are invited to gather for a brown bag lunch and informal conversation about developing pedagogical approaches that make the most effective use of what Moodle can offer us as theological educators. Please come prepared to share your experiences, your questions, and your hopes.
Facilitated by Susanna Singer, CDSP Faculty | When: Tuesday August 20, 12:30 – 2:00 PM | Where: Mudd 102, PSR

Inklewriter is a program that allows you to create interactive books for free. By having your students select choices as they go through the book, you can present information that varies based on your students' selections. Or students can create a book themselves that presents different scenarios and possible outcomes.
