I run the Active Teaching Initiatives at UW-Madison. Our Active Teaching Labs are twice-weekly facilitated instructor discussions, sharing challenges and experiences in using technology to teach more effectively and efficiently. Leveraging Tech to TEACH is a semester-long class for faculty, staff, and graduate students. Leveraging Tech to LEARN is a semester-long fellowship where we meet with and learn from students about their best and worst teaching experiences.
