UCR faculty are invited to learn how to “Take I-Learn to the Limit” at the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Colloquium on April 24 and 25.

“Taking I-Learn to the Limit” is the next program in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Colloquium, presented by the University of California, Riverside Office of Undergraduate Education. The quarterly series exposes UCR faculty to the best practices in higher education.

Hosted by cognitive psychologist Curt Burgess, the session will explore the hidden possibilities of I-Learn, the powerful teaching and learning platform used here at UCR. Joining Burgess are some of the campus’ most creative instructors who will each be presenting 10-minute mini-demonstrations of ways to use I-Learn to improve teaching practice without adding time to the day.

The colloquium will be offered twice: Tuesday, April 24 in HUB 269 and Wednesday, April 25 in Surge 367.

Scheduled presenters and topics include:

  • Burgess (Psychology), who will demonstrate ways to elicit student feedback for “just-in-time” revision of lectures and to detect learning problems.
  • David Biggs (History), who  will show how to create blogs and use wikis to promote student learning.
  • Ward Beyermann (Physics), who will demonstrate how to use pre- and post-lecture testing to check quickly on student progress.
  • Gene Nothnagel (Botany and Plant Sciences), who will show how to use I-Learn to construct writing assignments in courses that would otherwise be too large and have too little support to allow for them.
  • Leo Schouest, UCR’s instructional technology guru who will provide technical support.
