A Year of Free Tools: An FLC's Exploration of Their Uses in Higher Education

In this seminar, our Faculty Learning Community (FLC) will share several of the free technologies that we have explored this year. FLC members, who represent faculty and staff from across Miami University, will demonstrate a variety of technologies-all of which are free and easy-to-learn-that can enhance faculty and staff's teaching, productivity, and efficacy. FLC members will share use cases for several free technologies, provide examples of how we have implemented some of the tools, and answer questions about the tools we examined. The FLC facilitators will also speak about the process our FLC used for determining and evaluating the technologies we covered.

Presented by Members of the Faculty Learning Community on the Exploration of Free Tools in Higher Education

The Faculty Learning Community on the Exploration of Free Tools in Higher Education is comprised of nine interdisciplinary faculty, staff, and graduate students who have spent the last eight months exploring a variety of free technologies. With a broad array of disciplines and various technical abilities, we have been meeting with a single goal in mind-how to leverage technology to advance learning and our work in higher education.
