If you have a new teaching tool, how do you help it see broader use across campus?
Let’s say you’ve helped create or set up some cool new teaching tool. ...
And you worked with – or you are – just one or two faculty, and the tool is now happily working its magic with a small number of real students. ...
How do you take the next step to see it reach wider use across the UW-Madison campus?
Let’s take a little survey: What are practical ways to publicize a teaching tool across our campus? Here’s a short list we came up with in the External Relations subcommittee. Can you add to this list?
- ComETS: Post it to our e-mail list and our Web site. comets.wisc.edu
- TLE (Teaching and Learning Excellence) Web site: Allows anyone with a NetID to post items to a standing collection of teaching “Solutions” and “Resources.” https://tle.wisc.edu/
- Teaching and Learning Symposium: Any of us can propose a presentation/workshop topic for this UW-Madison event held every May, to which the entire campus is invited: http://www.learning.wisc.edu/tlsymposium/
- Showcase: Demonstrate your tool to interested attendees: http://quality.wisc.edu/showcase.htm
- DELTA: Reach out to them if the tool could be useful to improve teaching in the “natural and social sciences, engineering and mathematics.” http://www.delta.wisc.edu/
- Campus partner websites and social media. Reach out to other campus units. For example, ask L&S Learning Support Services to post a story on http://lss.wisc.edu. Post on Twitter and ask partners for retweets. Post on Facebook and ask for Likes. You can do the same with your own school or college’s web site and social media.
