Since people started gathering together to teach and learn, we’ve been investigating how to more effectively deliver and absorb knowledge. For the better part of human history, this meant a teacher stood in front of an assembled group of students and delivered a lecture, perhaps with questions and debate from the audience. Adaptive learning, one of the most promising developments to emerge from online course delivery, can make the process of teaching and learning more individualized and possibly more effective.
Teaching & Learning
The Summer Music Performance is the culmination of a program at the Steinhardt Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions that offers students an opportunity to learn about music technology, production, and performance.
NYU College of Global Public Health Associate Professor Danielle Ompad collaborated with the Digital Studio’s educational design technologist Sharon Kay to develop a course for the CGPH’s Master’s program in Public Health.
ITP Camp is a four-week evening and weekend program that offers professionals and students a chance to get their feet wet with cutting-edge technologies. The emphasis is on using technology to turn ideas into reality, and encouraging students to create physical representations of their ideas.
As NYU faculty work through the summer to prepare their course materials for the fall semester, it is important to keep in mind the ways in which fair use can be used to provide research materials to students.
Change in IT security is so rapid that what is learned in a classroom can be out of date by the time the class is over. The Hacker in Residence program at NYU Tandon School of Engineering provides access to security professionals so students can get experience with security issues.
Instructional technologists consult with faculty to help them determine the best ways to integrate innovative pedagogy and state-of-the-art media into courses.
NYU Libraries recently launched Digital Scholarship Services (DSS), a new service that helps NYU faculty and students incorporate digital scholarship tools and methods into their research and teaching. As digital scholarship in general and digital humanities in particular become more prevalent, DSS helps scholars create cutting-edge research in their fields.
For most students, orientation means sitting through hours of presentations and speeches. At NYU Stern’s MBA program, it’s a little bit different. Since 2013, new students participate in the Langone Lab, a two-day experiential program. Students participate in a design-thinking experience where they use cutting-edge mobile technology and applications to come up with actual product prototypes that they present to professors and peers.
While the addition of technology into teaching practices is a growing trend in curriculum design, providing support for faculty on effective implementation strategies is becoming an even more critical piece of the equation.
