MAGPI Offers Teaching and Learning with Internet2 in Higher Education Symposium
Join MAGPI and its partner, NJEDge.Net this April 1st, 2011 for the first ever Teaching and Learning with Internet2 in Higher Education Symposium
Advanced research and education networks, such as Internet2, offer higher education faculty and their students opportunities to connect to a diverse array of resources and to collaborate with partners around the world to enhance teaching and learning. Through a series of keynotes and breakout sessions, this one day Symposium is designed to give faculty a taste of the many projects and resources that exist, and how they can be applied in their own teaching practice.
The Teaching and Learning with Internet2 in Higher Education Symposium will be held on April 1, 2011 from 8:45 AM - 3:30 PM and will take place in two physical locations: Bucks County Community College in Pennsylvania and Mercer County Community College in New Jersey. Participants in both venues will be able to interact with presenters and each other through high definition video conferencing.

9:30 - 10:15 am Ann Doyle, Internet2 Global and Cultural Collaboration Director -- Transforming Learning in Higher Education: Realizing the Possibilities
Join Internet2 Global and Cultural Collaboration Director Ann Doyle for a moderated panel discussion about how teaching and learning are evolving in university and community college classrooms. See how students and maestros interact across the world in performing arts education. Understand how science, technology and the arts converge for interdisciplinary experiential learning in the Dancing Volcanoes project. Learn how students can access remote scientific instruments. Examine how tools like interactive video or digital collections can extend your own syllabus or campus community.
2:15 - 3:00 pm Dr. Alison Carr-Chellman and Dr. Brett Bixler, Penn State University -- Games 2 Learn: Bring Back the Boys
Games 2 Learn: Bring Back the Boys is a presentation that focuses on the cultural mismatch between boys and schools, starting very young and looking forward into the detachment that happens when those same boys enter the University gates. Gaming is seen as one of many tools we might use to help connect with our men learners to bolster their retention and perseverance. Some ideas on how we in higher education can better meet their needs through gaming will be explored in this presentation.
