MET EdTech Colloquium Series
Every semester, the Office of Distance Education and the Educational Technology & Innovation Team of Metropolitan College host discussions on a variety of topics related to the use of educational technology in the online, blended, and face-to-face classroom. The discussions focus on best practices and innovative uses of educational technology and media in teaching. They are presented in topic pairs, the first of each being an overview of available approaches and technologies and the second being a how to presentation focused on a specific tool. Examples are provided and recommendations for incorporating these methods into face-to-face, blended, and online classes are shared.
