What Participants Say About Unit T

“CUT introduced me to some incredible resources, and I am really hoping to be able to incorporate them into assessments and in a classroom setting in the future. The Teaching with Technology unit was a good refresher for what I already knew, and for what was new information and resources.” Anna Taft, History MA Student
“My technical skills, including use of technology to assist with teaching, increased greatly. I also had my horizons expanded in terms of inclusion and diversity and the effects those have on learning.” Michael McKeever, Chemistry PhD Candidate
“This unit helped me to re-envision classroom activities in a virtual space... In this unit, I grasped how to facilitate teamwork through online teaching tools, such as using breakout room in ZOOM for discussions, using shared GoogleDoc folders for group projects, VoiceThread for doing group presentations, Perusall for annotating and commenting on primary literature, and Padlet for sharing students’ ideas and posting photos and video. In addition, with the training on inclusive teaching, I understood the importance of increasing accessibility for students with disabilities and learned to be aware and use tools to facilitate accessibility (e.g., setting up automated captions for ZOOM meetings)... To sum up, this Unit T training opened up my eyes to use multiple online tools to facilitate teaching.” Yingtong (Amanda) Wu, Biology PhD Candidate
