1:30 – 2:00 pm – Dispositions of Blended Learning Educators
• Blended Learning is not only changing how and when learning is delivered, it is changing the very culture of our institution. While 21st-century learning changes how we learn, it also changes the skills required to teach and the infrastructure required to support learning. According to George Couros, we are learners, innovators, leaders, storytellers, designers and artists who build relationships, create inclusivity and networks and practice reflection. Join this discussion about how blended learning is changing teaching and learning at Carleton and some of the opportunities and challenges that this creative disruption poses.
– Jaymie Koroluk & Elspeth McCulloch, Assistant Director & Manager, eLearning, EDC
2:00 – 2:30 pm – Two Uses of Dynamically Generated Math Content
• During the past few years teaching Linear Algebra I online, I developed some online generators for worked examples. The ideas behind these generators eventually powered the “personalized assignments” that are now found in the course. In this presentation, I will give a short demo of the generators and a brief history of how the course assignments have evolved. I will also discuss the original motivations and my plans for the future regarding these items.
– Kevin Cheung, Associate Professor, School of Mathematics & Statistics

3:00 – 4:00 pm (SA 624) – Overview: A New Online Exam Delivery at CUOL
• CUOL has reached an agreement with a software company to provide our students with a reliable online exam software called MuchLearning. Join us for an overview of this new software! We will show you the look of the software from the student perspective, grade a test and generate a spreadsheet for eGrades. We will also show you how the software can handle intricate math questions using symbols. This easy-to-use software can handle all types of answers, i.e., multiple choice, true or false, long and short answers, and complex math answers (symbols). MuchLearning was developed for Athabasca University (AU) and is currently the AU’s main exam online software.
– Renea Free & Nestor Querido, Exam Coordinator, CUOL
3:00 – 4:00 pm (SA 617) – Space: the final frontier. Where no one has gone before. But boldly we go!
• Come and join the discussion about what constitutes a high-quality space for teaching and learning. Learn how IMS is working actively to improve and enhance these spaces on campus to reflect changing pedagogical and learning cultures. Bring your ideas, suggestions and a sense of adventure!
– Nina Karhu, Manager, Classroom Support & Development, IMS
3:00 – 4:00 pm (SA 609) – Media Commons & Lightboard (Media Production Lab)
• Do you have a process or a sequence that you need to illustrate for your students? Lightboard might be the answer for you. Lightboard is a large sheet of glass powered by colourful LED lights. It can be used to create short, engaging videos that showcase the instructor drawing or annotating on the glass with fluorescent markers to help illustrate their message. The tool is especially useful for instructors who want to provide explanations of problems or case studies, review material, or annotate images, videos or physical objects.
– Lisa RungeFaubert, Supervisor, Media Production Centre, CUOL
