Interests in Technology
Computer - lab interface
Use of technology for time management
Smart phones and ipads
Gaming and social media
ITS expertise in digital technology
Use of technology in labs
Videos on You Tube
Use of technology for course administration
technology that is currently available and happening
use of technology in history
use of technology on teaching by different cultures / genders
digital image management
collaborative teaching with other Universities
3D environments for language learning
Interests in Research
Motivation of students
role of lecture in the 21st Century
use of powerpoint
how student perceptions inform outcomes
role of technology in teaching
digital design / design of technology
IT solutions to connect research and teaching
design of teaching spaces, and teaching space needs
research into facilitating better discussions
note - writing coaches are available
The diversity of the group is a great strength - and an opportunity to think across disciplines. Would be interesting to see how the same technology is used in different Schools, and to carry out research into a similar teaching aspect in very different teaching environments / dicsiplines.
NOTES (many thanks to Anne Macaskill)
Great that the first seminar got a high turnout and good representation across schools. Explanation of the proposal to the VUW fund. Arose from people’s interests in research and teaching technology. Aim is to establish community of enquiry/ best practice

Flipped lectures and clickers
LAW, CAMPUS SERVICES, ITS, BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES, CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES
Technology: use of background music (should be baroqueJ) in lectures and exams
Interest in refurbishment of teaching spaces/ need to understand future teaching needs
Interest: teaching with technology from ITS POV: how can they enable what people want?
Flipped classrooms, use of technology, peer-wise (students create questions and grade each other)

Team of retired English teachers may have spare capacity to coach writing over Skype
IT solutions for connecting research and teaching
ITS, BIOL SCIENCES, CAMPUS SERVICES, EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY AND PEDOGOGY

BIOL, CLASSICS, HUMANITIES, EDUCATION, CHEMISTRY, LINGUISTICS,
How to use technology in teaching and labs (chemistry lab)
How does digital media help students/teachers think about the past (historical thinking) “blogging to improve English” (amongst students and teachers). Digital design. Clickers.
Kevin /Rhian/Stephen: there may be money to bring in people to present seminars from CAD
Stephen Marshall: Could be recorded/ remote/ asynchronous
Sydney Shep: Comment that it would be good for sessions to involve people from different areas giving their perspectives on individual topics- tools / approaches etc to understand how these might differ across disciplines
Rhian: example of Diane Ormsby’s integration of graduate attributes into her courses…. Could we do a research project with several different people integrating that across schools? Perhaps one of the sessions could involve the seminar group looking at opportunities/potential for collaboration within the seminar group.
[sorry – not sure of name]Project that is currently being worked on engage human resource students in understanding what is changing about employment in this (Wellington) region. Feedback from employers about graduate attributes. Might be of interest given the diversity of academic subjects here.
Sara Kindon:Comment: studies do about gendered responses to technology, or responses across culture/ ethnic groups might be connected into what we’re talking about.
Rhian: People attending have the opportunity to be included as much or as little in steering committee group that will look at how to use seminar time.
Tony: Idea about meeting in smaller (campus-based) groups. (Is this group too unwieldy?) Also suggested possibility of sub-group meetings focused on specific issues. Could meet at other times and discuss themes of interest to sub-groups within the seminar attendees.
Stephen Marshall: Is going to be an online presence to support/sustain group/community
Sydney Shep:Move around campuses/ link to educational designers
Show of hands suggesting Kelburn people are happy to go to other campuses.
