A UCLA Campus Conversation sponsored by the Online Teaching & Learning Initiative
Wednesday, November 8, 2017, YRL Conference Room, 8:30-4:30
Session 4


Technology has made it easier to cross physical and disciplinary boundaries of all kinds. This session picks up on themes introduced earlier as well as the growing campus interest in global and community outreach to explore how faculty are crossing those boundaries. BILL WORGER, a history professor who has coordinated UCLA programs with Historically Black Colleges and Universities and partnered with the University Library on several digital projects, will speak to how his current History of Africa and his new History of South Africa courses share resources and learning opportunities from Westwood, to other UCLA campuses, to Freedom Park in South Africa. JULIETTE LEVY, a UCLA PhD and history professor at UC Riverside, has developed three online courses and games for learning. She will speak to her students’ experiences in a large general education course on the History of the 20th Century that leverages technology to engage students in the history of their Major disciplines and how areas of interests have changed during that 100 year span. TODD PRESNER, a long-time innovator in teaching with technology for UCLA students and community audiences, will speak about the ways in which Urban Humanities courses have used technologies to engage our students with communities in Los Angeles and other cities around the world. Michael Shin, Director of the UCLA Program in Geospatial Information Systems & Technology and Chair of the Senate's Committee on Instruction & Technology will chair.
