This summer, then Campus Director Dr. Jodi Zeis and Teaching Fellow Jimmy Patel co-presented at the SC Midlands Summit. The Summit was publicized as a two-day conference focusing on the integration of technology into schools. In their session, "You Got This! Flipgrid Learning & Assessment for All," Zeis and Patel shared how Flipgrid can be used as an assessment tool and a strategy to increase engagement during online instruction. According to Dr. Zeis, Jimmy was equally responsible for developing the PowerPoint slides and presenting at the event.
Dr. Zeis also worked with Teaching Fellow Delonte Hough to plan an evening of conversation about equity and discrimination in our communities and schools. The other FMU Teaching Fellows were invited to attend, listen to the discussion, and/or share their thoughts. The goal of this professional development event was to have an open and honest dialogue about these important issues. Zeis reported, "The thoughts and ideas, along with the mutual respect for each other were amazing. We all left the Zoom conference with something to think about."
