Frontiers in Science Teaching and Turning Technologies User Conference 2012
Titled ‘Clickers, Peer Instruction and the Inverted Classroom’, the Centre for Science Education, Aarhus University and Turning Technologies are hosting a joint symposium at Aarhus University 18-19 June, 2012.
If it’s like the previous Turning Technologies User Conference held at the University of Surrey, this will be quite an inspiring two-day conference. Whilst there is plenty of exposure to learning technologies, it’s the pedagogic approaches offered by the technologies that are the highlights and, indeed, focus of the joint symposium.
Eric Mazur (Prof of physics at Harvard) provides keynote addresses for both days, the first specializing on science teaching, the second with the emphasis on use of Turning Technologies hardware and software. This is a great opportunity to be inspired, but you can contribute, too.
Turning Technologies are looking for breakout session presenters to share best practices and insights regarding effective use. Deadline for consideration is 16th April 2012. Denmark in June… I can think of worse places 🙂
