SSD19: How to Revitalize Traditional Course Work through Adobe Products

Hours: 1.25

Are you interested in how to get started in adding Digital Literacy across your curriculum? Participants will brainstorm and ideas will be shared on how faculty new to Adobe products can convert the traditional research paper into a creative opportunity for students. Participants will also explore how to turn that basic class presentation into a dynamic project that students can add to their portfolios. Results from recent conversions in the Liberal Arts will be shared among others. This session is designed for all faculty members who are new to Adobe products. No technical experience required, just a willingness to learn and try new things!

At the completion of this session, participants will be able to:

•Gain the ability to contribute to students' digital citizenship.
•Find the courage to begin the Adobe journey.
•Foster creativity by using digital tools in the classroom.
•Discover innovative ideas on how to convert traditional academic papers and assignments into creative opportunities for students.
•Incorporate Adobe products into everyday lectures.
•Establish a collaborative network with faculty from other disciplines striving for the same outcomes.
•Review assessment rubrics for new learning artifacts.
