University of Mary Washington’s Faculty Academy 2007

The Faculty Academy on Instructional Technologies is a free annual event hosted by the University of Mary Washington. For the past 12 years, Faculty Academy has brought together faculty and staff from both campuses at UMW to share and celebrate the year’s efforts and accomplishments in the classroom, with teaching and learning technologies as the specific focus (or, one might say, catalyst) of the event.

Below are three presentations a co-presented with several of my colleagues at the University of Mary Washington. Each of these presentations ahs associated resources if you would like more specific information about the topic, examples, etc.

  • “Small Pieces Loosely Joined: Web 2.0 Learning Environments at UMW” Co-presented with Gardner Campbell, Steve Greenlaw, and Jerry Slezak (UMW)
  • “Hey, You Got Your Folksonomic Tags in My Semantic Web!” Co-presented with Patrick Gosetti Murray-John

This presentation features the UMW Instructional Technology Specialists (Martha Burtis, Patrick Gosetti-Murrayjohn, Jim Groom, Andy Rush, and Jerry Slezak) discussing how services available on a commercial web-hosting service have transformed both their work with UMW faculty and their own professional development.
