Thursday, October 19, 2017, 12:15 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.

Guest Presenters:
Danielle Bellows, Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences 
Dr. Lee Townsend, Assistant Professor in the College of Engineering, Technology and Architecture

In this session, Ms. Danielle Bellows and Dr. Lee Townsend will discuss best practices and ways to use interactive digital notebooks such as OneNote and Evernote to: promote collaborative learning; engage and organize students; and provide an on-going professional resource. Using interactive notebooks is a great way for students to take notes, post labs, and curate content for research papers or projects. With the use of a digital notebook, students can scaffold their assignments, describe experiences and craft meaningful, thought out writing. These notebooks are also useful for educators in planning lessons and capturing feedback after a class. Outside the LMS, the notebooks provide a collection of work for students that they can use for portfolios that can be used as a future resource. Notebooks can be shared with your class, students can contribute to the notes, and whiteboard photos can be captured and handouts can be disseminated. Students and Educators can access digital notebooks like OneNote and Evernote across multiple devices such as their computers, phone or tablets, allowing them to create content on-the-go, in their own spaces, and on their own time.
