Teaching Commons Workshops

DePaul's Teaching Commons is offering a series of Workshops. I think several of these may be of interest to Commerce faculty. Notable workshops include Darsie Bowden on helping students read effectively, and Garrett Grenz on engaging international students in the classroom.

Workshops are free to DePaul faculty. More information and registration can be found on the website:

Pocket Digital Camcorders

I have just posted my video from March’s Technology Tuesday. I looked at three reasonably priced digital camcorders (the Flip Mino, Vado HD and Kodak Zi6) to see which would be the most suitable for filming classroom lectures and presentations.

If you only intend to record less than one hour of content, then the Flip Mino is my suggestion. However, if you need to record in excess of three hours, your best option is the Vado HD (and a couple of spare batteries).

The videos and handouts can be found on my Technology Tuesday page and on iTunes U.

Have Joined Classroom 2.0

I have joined Classroom 2.0. At the moment my profile there is somewhat undeveloped. I hope to post something of significance over the weekend.
