2A S113 Let Me Send You a Link (Part 2)
Dr. Carolyn Speer
Wichita State University

Through a continuous quality improvement process, Wichita State went from a simple blog site to a consolidated training website that efficiently and effectively delivers over 60% of the professional development offered by the office of Instructional Design and Technology. In a year, we expanded our PD reach by over 500%.  In this workshop, participants will see the completed website, hear about how it is expanding to support the training efforts of other offices, and learn about how to participate in this effort or start a just-in-time training program of their own.

2C S155 Blended Learning Styles: There’s an App for That!
Meg Smith

Cowley College

In the real world we do not get to pick our learning style, life is about cross overs. So why not prep students for life’s little intersections in the relative safety of the college classroom? Consider partnering assignments to cross over learning styles with some brainstorming and a little practice, any classroom can be blended to create a unique student experience. Think about adding an app that turns a composition essay into a graphic novel (Strip Designer), creates a storyboard for a multimedia presentation (Comic Life) or organizes an art or design project (Moodboard Lite).

2D S156 Attention! Attention! Now Hear This!
Dr. Jerree Forbes
Friends University

Verbal memory and attentional skills are essential in most learning environments. Listening, thinking, speaking, writing, creating, reflecting, and deciding are all common learning related actions that frequently verbal memory and attention. Technology can facilitate the enhancement of attentional and verbal memory capacity in learners as an integrated instructional strategy. The result fundamentally increases learning efficiency and increases the learner’s ability to evidence their learning. This session will present ready-to-use methods and techniques to integrate well designed instructional technology into a variety of learning environments. Participants will engage in an experience designed to build verbal memory and attentional skills in learners.

2E S202 The Challenges and Rewards of Collaborative Team Teaching
Shelby Jansen

Wichita Area Technical College

The General Education department at WATC combined forces with Technical Faculty to team-teach the Technical Math courses offered in the AMT (Aviation maintenance Technology) Program, as well as, assist in the Blueprint courses offered in the Aviation Core at WATC.  Baseline student data obtained from an initial diagnostic assessment identified gaps in foundational knowledge.  Faculty worked together to prepare meaningful lessons and classroom activities.  The GenEd instructor provided the fundamental concepts while the Technical instructor provided the context in which the math can be applied.  EdReady (The NROC Project) was used to enhance the mathematical curriculum traditionally taught in the courses.  WATC is a member of the NROC project which is funded by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and most importantly by NROC members across the country.

Are you confused about the different models, frameworks and standards? Not sure what these terms mean? How do we decide which is the best to use? How do we sort this out? Then please attend this engaging session! Come and see how these models are being integrated in a graduate education program. This session will also demonstrate how teachers are modeling best practices through the use of TPACK, SAMR, and ISTE.

2G S214 Anatomy & Physiology Familiarization

Andy Dong



A hands-on, interactive workshop focusing on the anatomy and physiology of the human body using SynDaver Labs’ revolutionary model.  Our SynDaver Synthetic Human bleeds, breathes, and employs hundreds of replaceable muscles, bones, organs, veins, and arteries – all made from materials that mimic the mechanical, thermal, and physicochemical properties of live tissue. This validated technology is used to replace live animals, cadavers and even human patients in medical device studies, clinical training, and surgical simulation.
