DYLAN MEDINA, DICE 4910
February 8, 2018
Dylan Medina’s hybrid course, DICE 4910: Introduction to Research Methods, is a thoughtful, well-crafted course. Designed to teach students the value of research-based knowledge and various methodological approaches in the Social Sciences, this course also teaches students how to implement those approaches to answer relevant and important questions. Dylan will discuss how he went about designing and organizing the course to ensure that students would arrive at the intended outcomes.
Dylan is an Instructor in the Digital Technology and Cultures program. His research and pedagogy are deeply invested in learning and its application to future contexts. His MA and PhD research focuses on how students acquire and deploy rhetorical strategies and skills within the social, material, and technological landscapes in which they work. He teaches classes ranging from Research Methods to Composition to Python programming.
KATIE OLIVERAS, UCOR 1200
October 21, 2016
Is it possible to get online UCOR students excited about mathematics? Professor Katie Oliveras did just that this past summer through her course: The Mathematics of Epidemics. A compelling mix of original animations, quiz questions, and approachable content make this remarkable course one of the most engaging and innovative online learning experiences to come out of CDLI. We are honored to have the opportunity to hear Professor Oliveras speak candidly about her adventures in producing AND teaching the course over the past summer. Please join us on Friday, October 21st at 12:30 in Pavilion 050 (across from SUperCopy). Can’t make it? Please check out one of our other upcoming faculty events!
