Instructors at the University of Virginia are learning more on how to incorporate technology into their courses.
Organizers say the opportunities and tools technology offers can improve course and change them dramatically.
“For example, the flipping the classroom where you record your lecture so students watch the lecture online and use the in class time to actually do practical work with help instead of on their own all by themselves. That's one exciting change that's come about in the last year,” said Trisha Gordon, UVaCollab User Support Manager.
Organizers say they are thrilled with the amount of interest in the courses, about 100 people came to the event to learn about the new opportunities.
