Teaching on Twitch: Using a Streaming/Gaming Platform for Dynamic Online Classes
Feb 15 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

This month we have a great opportunity to explore a lecture technique and platform beyond Zoom & PowerPoint! Since Fall 2020, Associate Teaching Professor Ming Chow has been teaching and live-streaming his Introduction to Security course (CS 116) on Twitch on Thursdays. The course now enters its sixth semester available on Twitch. The live-streamed Twitch classes earned Ming a 2022 Teaching with Technology Award. In this session, Ming will explain why he decided to use and teach on Twitch, what you need to teach on the platform, and the pros and challenges of teaching on Twitch.

Presented by COLT – Tufts Community of Online Learning and Teaching

Poll Everywhere Workshop
Mar 28 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Have you ever asked your students “Any Questions” only to look out at a room full of blank faces? Poll Everywhere allows you to pose interactive questions and allows ALL your students to respond in real time. Students tend to be more engaged, and their learning benefits from the immediate feedback they receive from you in real time.  Poll Everywhere works directly in PowerPoint and other presentation tools, and allows you to track your students progress and participation.
