OIT's Academic Technologies would like to invite the university community to attend the second fall 2011 Faculty Showcase event to spotlight Ohio University faculty work on enhancing teaching and learning.  This 50-minute brown-bag lunch will showcase Michael Lafreniere’s work on the “Creation of a Collaboratory.”

Creation of a Collaboratory: An Active, Engaging, and Effective Learning Environment

  • presented by Michael Lafreniere
  • Thursday, November 3, 12:10 to 1:00 pm
  • Faculty Commons, Alden Library 319 (Friends of the Library Room)
  • Seating is limited to 60 individuals. The event also will be streamed live.

Every student can “come to the board” in a collaboratory without ever leaving their seat (or coming to campus). Across many disciplines, current technology exists to create and incorporate collaboratories into an active, engaging, and effective learning environment. This Faculty Showcase will highlight how to create a collaboratory that facilitates student participation, formative and peer assessment, and enhances a student’s contribution to the learning experience. Examples acquired over the past few years of use in the classroom will be shared. This presentation includes scalable features for integration of hybrid and online students, as well as features desired by qualitative researchers who desire to collect pedagogical student data.

Michael Lafreniere is an Assistant Professor on our Chillicothe campus who teaches Environmental Engineering Technology and Mathematics. In addition, he is a recent recipient of an Ohio University Foundation 1804 Award for Undergraduate Learning that supports this Collaboratory creation initiative.
