What's a Genius Lab? Similar to the new format introduced at ACPA 2014 in Indianapolis, ESCAPE 2014's Genius Labs are 15-minute skill-building workshops highlighting a number of practical activities (primarily focused on technology) designed for participants to learn about, experiment with, and implement immediately. Take a break from the traditional learning sessions and join us in our open, interactive, and high-tech space. Topics will be selected with the intent of having meaningful instruction for all skill levels, sending attendees home with effective (and often free) new resources, and building confidence and competence in new tools to help you work on your campus. Genius Labs will be scheduled Round Robin style concurrent with roundtable discussions.
Possible topics may include:
Maximizing Your LinkedIn Profile
Creating a Movie using iMovie
Surveys: Wufoo, SurveyMonkey, & Google Forms
Using Poll Everywhere
Twitter: Beyond the Basics
Using Optimal Resume
Track Your Student Activity Using C3M
