Ithaca College Natural Lands
Ithaca College has more than 400 acres of natural lands (ICNL) within walking distance of the built campus. All of this land is at your disposal for teaching your courses. In light of calls across higher education for active inquiry, experiential learning, and learning by doing, not to mention the IC 20/20 imperatives for place-based curriculum and interdisciplinary integration, there has never been a better time to consider taking your students outside.
This series of events will begin with a general introduction to ICNL (indoors) by faculty and students who use these lands. We will present maps, projects, and current courses that use ICNL. This general introduction will be followed at a later date by a more focused workshop on field teaching techniques and strategies. The primary objective of these events is to reach out to faculty OUTSIDE the usual departments (ENVS, BIOL, et al.) that might have an interest in field teaching but minimal experience. We also welcome faculty who are ignorant (or even doubtful) about the relevance of the outdoors to their subject matter. We will strive to find a meaningful teaching and learning experience for everyone who attends!
Light refreshments provided.

Center for Faculty Excellence, Gannett Center 316
Presented by Cyndy Scheibe, Associate Professor, Department of Psychology
Learn how using Prezi can help you think differently about the material you are presenting, allowing you to help students see both the big picture and the details, as well as understanding the connections between concepts.
Light refreshments provided.
Registration is encouraged, but not necessary.
Faculty Show and Share is a series put on by the Center for Educational Technology in collaboration with the Center for Faculty Excellence. Each session features a guest faculty member who shows how they use a technology to address a teaching goal. Come hear what worked - or didn't work in a format that is informal, experimental, and fun. Discussion is encouraged and anyone is welcome regardless of their experience with technology.
We are always looking for faculty to show and share. Please contact Marilyn Dispensa (email@example.com or 274-3647) if you are interested.
