Emerging Practices Teaching Conversation with Middlebury Asst. Professor Jeff Howarth – Self Publishing Online Materials

The Digital Learning Commons is pleased to invite MIIS faculty as well as interested staff to a lunchtime brown bag conversation on effective and emerging ‘next generation’ teaching practices.

Middlebury Assistant Professor of Geography, Jeff Howarth will share his experience “self-publishing” course materials for use in his teaching. Recognized at Middlebury in 2014 for his excellence in teaching, particularly for his adaptation of the flipped approach to course design, Jeff is actively experimenting with an alternative instructional model which he describes as “self-publishing a new kind of textbook” via his Youtube channel: GIS at Midd.

Participants will get a behind the scenes perspective on the benefits, challenges, and opportunities of teaching with “self-published online materials”, share their own approaches, connect with DLC staff, and take away some new ideas for future course development.
