Designed specifically for math,
science, language arts, and educational technology faculty, the
workshop will allow participants the opportunity to explore real-world learning objects (RWLOs)
that have been developed by faculty from community colleges across
the country. In addition, they will share ideas for implementation
and create their own Implementation Plan for one of the RWLOs.
The training begins with a short overview of RWLOs, followed by an exercise to demonstrate how they are used to
engage students in the learning process. Participants then
experience a guided exploration of the RWLO library and select one
RWLO to incorporate into a course they are currently teaching.
Participants will leave the training knowing how to access and use the
growing RWLO Library that continues to be developed through
Pathways, a USDOE-funded program designed to help community college
faculty who teach our nationís future teachers.
Additionally, participants will
share ideas for implementation by posting comments to the
