Catawba professors present at conference

Two Catawba College professors represented the institution recently at an international technology and higher education pedagogical conference held in Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 4-6.
Dr. Erin Wood, an assistant professor of psychology, and Dr. Forrest Anderson, an assistant professor of English, submitted proposals for presentations and were approved via a competitive evaluative process to present at The Teaching Professor Technology Conference. This conference was a “sister” conference to the longstanding The Teaching Professor Conference.
Wood presented an e-poster entitled “Engaging the Change: From Hardback to No Back” related to the essential steps she took when transitioning from a traditional face-to-face and physical textbook pedagogy to one that includes various methods of student-instructor interaction and multimedia materials.
Anderson presented an e-poster entitled “Continuing the Classroom Community” that focused on how he uses multiple e-platforms to grow his students’ engagement with course content beyond the semester in which they attend his class.
Both faculty members will share their newfound knowledge about what others do at their institutions during a Jan. 31, 2014, faculty colloquium on campus.
