This website is the home of the Digital Pedagogy Initiative, which supports and incentivizes pedagogical innovation in the realm of digital technologies. We aim to support any HPU faculty member who wants to learn how to integrate digital tools into a course or wants to share what they’ve done with others. Whether you want to try out a social bookmarking tool or teach an advanced video project, we want to connect you with like-minded HPU faculty who can help you reach your goals.

Teaching demo: “Using Jing to Provide Audio Responses to Student Papers”
Tired of drowning in a sea of ungraded papers? Jing screencast could be the answer! Leap into the 21st century with a tech-savvy solution. This free, user-friendly platform will save you hours of response time, and your students will find the personalized video responses more helpful than your traditional red ink. In this one hour demo, you will learn the Jing basics, from downloading and installing the program in your toolbar, recording your first 5-minute audio/video clip as you scroll through a sample student paper, to posting it as a screencast web link to watch over and over. The only drawback? Listening to your own voice is really weird!
When & Where:
Wednesday, 2/19, 1:30-2:30pm in Phillips 220
Thursday, 2/20, 1:30-2:30pm in Phillips 223
NOTE: Please bring a laptop and download the Jing software before you come to the session.
Leader: Allison Walker
No RSVP Required
Are you working on an assignment and need some help learning how to utilize a particular tool, platform, or technology? Let us know! We’re looking for more faculty who are interested in either teaching or participating in hands-on workshops. For DPI purposes, “workshops” are two-hour intensive experiences designed for faculty members who have an assignment-in-progress (or want to revise one) and just need some help in developing it to fruition. Workshops are capped and require an RSVP. You can read about the workshops and the grant process here. Please email email@example.com to request a workshop.
