Integrating Cloud-Based Strategies and Tools in Face-to-Face Training Sessions to Increase the Impact of Professional Development
Gradel, Kathleen; Edson, Alden J.
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v40 n2 p113-130 Dec 2011
This article is based on the premise that face-to-face training can be augmented with cloud-based technology tools, to potentially extend viable training supports as higher education staff and faculty implement new content/skills in their jobs and classrooms. There are significant benefits to harnessing cloud-based tools that can facilitate both engagement and learning outcomes of trainees in face-to-face opportunities. These same tools--if used planfully--can build "cookie crumb trails" that facilitate trainees' post-training access to and interaction with training resources. Two primary solution sets are proposed, outlining both tools and use of (a) cloudbased "launch pads" and (b) interactive product building, with collaborative publishing. After reviewing solutions, an integrated picture of their use is presented, followed by implementation recommendations. (Contains 5 figures.)
