Teaching technology speed dating: Finding digital tools to use in teaching

Katrina Joseph

Session Information

Year: 2017 | Time: 4:15pm-5:45pm (Poster Session) | Location: Johnson Center (Dewberry Hall)


We propose to introduce participants to the Mason Instructional Design Special Interest Group (MID-SIG). Mason faculty, staff, and graduate students with an interest in instructional design, instructional technology, curriculum design and development, or learning technologies research are invited to join.

This poster session intends to provide information about our Technology Speed Dating events which take place during the spring and fall semesters. During our events, we share ideas in a fun and engaging way as participants visit each presentation. Presenters demonstrate how technology-based instructional strategies can challenge faculty, staff, and graduate students to embrace learning as a creative and reflective process. 

Technology Speed Dating is an engaging way to cultivate creative and intentional learners. Participants experience three 20-minute presentations followed by a 20-minute think-pair-share discussion wrap-up. Past topics include learner engagement, instructor presence, active learning, and stepping into the world of video.

Participants who attend this poster session will walk away with an understanding of 1) how Technology Speed Dating cultivates creative and intentional learners and 2) how joining the MID-SIG is aligned with the Mason value “We thrive together.”
