I’m Kevin Kelly. In addition to my role at ACUE, I teach an Instructional Technologies class each semester as a lecturer/adjunct at San Francisco State University.
Currently, I’m leading a fully online, large-scale (160+ students), General Education class, called “How 2 Lrn w ur iPod.” The students and instructors explore improving learning with and without a dozen different types of technology. Just like my in-person classes, my biggest challenge is to keep students engaged in such a big class. My strategy so far has been to find as many ways as possible to make the course concepts meaningful to the students on a personal level.
I look forward to meeting all of you and finding ways we can support each other.
