Tools of Engagement Project: Open-lab Session

The SUNY Tools of Engagement Project (TOEP): On-demand Discovery Learning Professional Development is designed to help Faculty, Staff and Teaching Assistants discover freely available online tools for teaching and learning. TOEP's curated content helps users discover valuable tools and provides guidance on effective uses and implementation of those tools to support student learning and engagement.

TOEP allows you to explore content that addresses your specific interests at your own pace and includes tutorials and resources about using blogs, wikis, audio, video, collaborative spaces, social bookmarking and more. Register as a participant in the project to document your learning progress and to be considered for special incentives.

This session is designed for people who are new to TOEP or who would like dedicated time to work on their TOEP discovery activities. Cindi Tysick (UB Libraries) and Robin Sullivan (TLC) will be on-hand to provide informal instruction about TOEP tools. The session includes:

  • a short overview about the project
  • guidance on how-to register for TOEP
  • plenty of time to work directly on TOEP discovery activities

If you are unable to attend, you can visit the TOEP website and join the TOEP community. You will find all the information you need on the project's website to start exploring TOEP tools right away.

Complimentary refreshments will be available.

The deadline to register for the Tools of Engagement Project is January 31, 2014. Incentive opportunities are available to those who complete TOEP by March 3, 2014. TOEP is funded through a SUNY Provost's Innovative Instruction Technology Grant (IITG).

If you have any questions about TOEP, please contact Roberta (Robin) Sullivan (rrs@buffalo.edu) at the Teaching & Learning Center.
