Enhancing Instruction at a Distance: Digital Tools for SHASS Teaching; Afternoon "Tasting Sessions" for Orientation Week

Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 4:30pm to 5:00pm

Virtual Event

How might user-friendly digital tools enhance and support SHASS pedagogy this fall? The MIT Programs in the Digital Humanities and the MIT Libraries invite you to join us for a series of four brief "tasting sessions" in which SHASS faculty will present digital tools for helping to make the most of instructional capacities at a distance. These short, pedagogically-oriented talks will focus on SHASS use cases, followed by time for questions and discussion. 

Our third session, "Mapping and Timelines," will feature Elizabeth Wood (History) on Google Maps, and Maria Khotimsky (Global Languages) on Padlet.

We hope you will be able to join the conversation!
