PATT Workshops and Conferences

PATT Workshops and Conferences

The PATT program provides introductory workshops which are designed to be quick and easy introductions to key issues that beginners. Additional workshops on the latest innovations in teaching and technology additionally provide a more advanced level of training for more experienced advanced users. The focus in all workshops is on how to leverage technology to encourage effective pedagogy and student engagement in the traditional and online classroom. Faculty members will leave each session with a variety of ideas on how to develop their classroom activities, as well as key resources to use in putting this into action in the least painful and time efficient way possible. Sessions aim to build off previous one so that those who want to build up a portfolio of training can do so, but each individual session can also be taken as a stand-alone session. Faculty are encouraged to follow up from these training sessions with one-on-one mentoring sessions with PATT as they aim to explore and implement material into their teaching.

SPRING 2016

PATT Tech Party in New Orleans - The Online Learning Consortium Conference (by virtual live attendance!), April 20-22 (all day, any day, all days)

Last year PATT Team faculty attended the Online Learning Consortium (OLC) Innovate Conference in Dallas and harvested new teaching technologies on behalf of John Jay faculty. The most creative, time saving and inexpensive approaches have been showcased at PATT Faculty Seminars during this academic year. The PATT Team member who “went to” Dallas virtually last year came away as enlightened as her colleagues who went in-person.  So this year the PATT Team will virtually attend the Innovate Conference from New Orleans.  Best of all, faculty can join us because we will live-stream OLC Innovate panels right here on campus.

The OLC PATT Pass covers all faculty.  Registration is FREE, courtesy of PATT.
