Interested in engaging students in new ways, while activating deeper learning and better retention? Join Cengage and guest speakers Craig Roberts and Marc Sperber for a virtual workshop on how and why to flip your college course. In this webinar, Craig, a professor of neuroscience and learning at the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences, and Marc, an instructional designer at the Duke University School of Nursing, talk about what drew them to the flipped classroom model and their experiences in helping faculty across the curriculum to flip their courses. Marc and Craig introduce the theoretical foundation of their approach—Chickering and Gamson’s Seven Principles of Effective Education – and apply it to their real-world experiences and best practices for “flipping” learned in their own classroom and work with other faculty.

Most virtual instructor-led training today follows the traditional footprint of 60 minutes. Popular belief is that anything longer means you will lose your audience and that people are too busy to devote any more time than that. So, what do you do when you want to take a 3-day, 24-hour course, make it virtual, have a live instructor, and give the learners a phenomenal, memorable learning experience? This session will answer this question by giving you some insights based on Dr. Lockhart-Jones’s 12 years of experience delivering tremendously successful, live, virtual instructor-led training, for global, geographically dispersed participants, with courses running 4-5 hours per day, 5 consecutive days a week.

In this talk, John LeMasney will discuss the trials, tribulations, and successes of creating and teaching classes on Arduino as programming at several New Jersey libraries across the state. Arduino is an open source hardware platform for learning about and making electronics prototypes to scratch your own itch. It is a well-supported, low-threshold-of-entry approach of inviting those new to electronics to create their own working circuits at a low monetary cost and little existing knowledge. I'll demonstrate what Arduino is in the larger sense, and why it's fun and easy to get started with Arduino.
