Oakland University's e-Cornucopia: Teaching with Technology is an annual one-day technology conference that explores online teaching and learning topics including pedagogy best practices, software, apps, engagement techniques and much more. 2017 marks the 9th consecutive year Oakland University has provided this regional forum for networking and the exchange of ideas.
Who should attend?
This conference is intended for higher education faculty, instructional designers, instructional technologists, academic administrators, graduate students and anyone who in interested in incorporating technology into their courses.
New this year! We are introducing the Technology Test Kitchen, which is an area where conference attendees will be able to have hands on experiences with different hardware and software. We will have different 'Master Chefs' guiding the experience and sharing how they use the technology but it is meant to be experimental and free form, a kind of maker space for educational technologies!
Are you Gameful? Understanding (and Improving) Student Academic Engagement
Dr. Barry J. Fishman, University of Michigan
The first step in any learning endeavor is engagement. If your students are not engaged, learning is not possible. Gameful Learning is a practical pedagogical approach that you can use to enhance learner engagement. Being gameful means leveraging our best knowledge about student motivation, and is closely tied to cutting edge ideas such as personalized learning, outcomes-based and standards-based learning, and digital credentials. This talk introduces core concepts for making education more gameful, and a tool called GradeCraft designed to support gameful teaching.
