3 To the extent that this YouTube video speaks on behalf of your students, we ask that you respond:  The slips of paper that we’ll be distributing contain claims about what it’s like to be a student today, based on data collected through the creation of this video project – this information represents the collective voice from one American university classroom in  Take a few minutes, on your own, to consider the statement on the piece of paper you have chosen. As a professor, how would you respond to this claim?  In groups of 3, discuss your responses.  If something stood out to you in your small-group discussion, you will have the opportunity to share back with the whole group. introductory activity:

9  Step 2 : In same groups of 3 take a few minutes to discuss the following questions, noting relevant insights from your colleagues: 1. Is your TEDTalk appropriate for your class? Why or why not?  In what way(s) does the TEDTalk complement the material in your class/course?  In what way(s) does the TEDTalk contradict the material in your class/course? 2. Is your TEDTalk appropriate for your associated Learning Community, given the program goals (connectedness and directedness)? Why or why not? 3. How can the theme of the LC or the TEDTalk benefit your entire class? TED TALK/YOUTUBE VIDEO activity: online media as a pedagogical tool in the classroom

10  Step 3 : As a larger group, discuss the following questions:  Do TEDtalks enable students to draw connections between course materials and the "real" world? How would you facilitate students in making these connections?  Do TEDtalks enable students to draw connections between the local and the global? How would you facilitate students in making these connections?  Do you think TEDtalks inspire you and your students to look for other learning resources?

11 Step 4: Take a minute to think about, and jot down, one teaching technique you might use to integrate some of the ideas from this workshop into your course.*  Feel free to reference the Collaborative Learning Teaching Techniques hand-out. *We would like to collect these ideas, compile them into one document and circulate to all instructors teaching a course with one or more LCs.
