Teaching Effectiveness and LITT Webinar "Improving Instructor Presence in Courses as Well as Engagement by Students" Library Classroom Oct 31 at 11:45 am

Dear colleagues,

I would like to invite you to our next Teaching Effectiveness event of the fall semester, co-sponsored by LITT (Lycoming Innovations in Teaching with Technology). The event is a webinar with Dr. Kay Gormley – “Improving Instructor Presence in Courses as Well as Engagement by Students: Podcasting, Screencasting, and Videos Made Easy”. The webinar will be held on Thursday, October 31, 2013 from 11:45 AM to 12:45 PM in the Snowden Library classroom (lower level)

This presentation will give you concrete ideas of how you can incorporate more digital literacy tools into your teaching and suggest ways for 'flipping the classroom.' Practical tools and strategies will be presented and Dr. Gormley’s face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses will be referenced as examples. Attendees will be provided with a copy of references, hyperlinks and the PPT for future reference.

Dr. Kay Gormley is an Associate Professor in Literacy at The SAGE Colleges, is active in the NYS Reading Association and the International Reading Association. She's published frequently on the use of Web 2.0 tools for teaching. Dr. Gormley has completed an Online Teaching Certification from Sloan-C on Tools and Techniques for Online Instruction.

The Library Classroom will be open for those who want to bring in lunch from 11:30 AM to noon. You can bring your own food from home or off campus. On campus, you can ask for a tray at the caf’s cash register, or buy food at Café 1812. If you plan on attending, please RSVP to Colleen Fox (, 4010) by noon on Wednesday October 30, so we know how many to plan for.

I hope to see you there!
