Title: USING INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY TO ENHANCE TEACHING
Abstract: How can instructional technologies enhance teaching and promote student learning? In this session I will demonstrate technologies useful in a variety of disciplines and classroom settings, and talk about how such technology can be used to improve learning inside and outside the classroom. The specific technologies discussed will be: interactive lecture notes, personal response systems (or clickers), pre-lab lessons, and lecture capture.

Pat Rogers (University of Windsor) B.A. (Oxon),
M.Sc. (Toronto), Ph.D. (London)
Dr. Pat Rogers has been Dean of the Faculty of Education, University of Windsor, since July 2001. Dr. Rogers came from York University, where she was professor of mathematics and education since 1981 and founding Academic Director of the Centre for the Support of Teaching (1989-94 and 1998-2001). Dr. Rogers research and teaching interests lie in mathematics, the influence of culture on mathematics education, and university teaching and learning. Among her publications are two co-edited books: Voices from the Classroom (2001) and Equity in Mathematics Education: Influences of Feminism and Culture (1995). She has received numerous honours and awards for her teaching and research, including the national 3M Teaching Fellowship (Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education STLHE - 1990) and the Polya Lectureship (Mathematics Associate of America - 1992). She has served the education community in several leadership roles, among them as President of STLHE (1995-2004) and Chair of Council for the International Consortium for Educational Development (1995-2003). She is currently Past-Chair of the Ontario Association of Deans of Education (2005-2009).
Florence Glanfield, Ph.D. (University of Alberta)
Dr. Florence Glanfield is of Métis ancestry and is currently
an Associate Professor of mathematics education and Associate Chair
at the Department of Secondary Education, University of Alberta.
Her classroom-based research interests stem from her experiences
as a learner. Florence works with First Nation communities, elementary
and secondary students, and elementary and secondary mathematics
pre-service and in-service teachers. During her career, Florence
had over 170 research and professional conference presentations
for provincial, national, and international audiences; and developed
over 75 different workshops that have been offered in numerous locations
across Canada. Her focus is on the ways in which students, and particularly
learners, at all age levels - kindergarten through university and
in-service teachers - are engaged.
Dr. Richard Barwell is Associate Professor in mathematics education. His research is located in the intersection of mathematics education and applied linguistics, with a particular focus on multilingualism/bilingualism in the teaching and learning of mathematics and the use of discourse analysis in mathematics education. Richards research interests include mathematics classroom discourse, discursive psychology, mathematics learning in multilingual settings and the relationship between learning language and learning curriculum content. Prior to his academic career, Richard taught mathematics in the UK and in Pakistan, where his interest in language and mathematics first arose.
