Dr. Sorel Friedman, New Technologies, New Pathways, Friday, October 2, 2009, 10:00 - 11:30am, SGW H-767
Dr. Sorel Friedman is Director of Language Courses at the Université de Montréal and is a recipient of the 3M National Teaching Fellowship award, 2008.
“Sorel’s innovations are pathways for any educator who wants to use technology to leverage learning. She is not only fluent “digitally,” reaching students with multimedia, chats, blogs, and videos, but she prompts them to express their learning with the tools they already know, commanding their attention and unleashing their creativity. Sorel is the architect of student podcast productions. She invites them to participate in social bookmarking on the web. She engages students in iTunesU, which allows her to comment on oral presentations."
" Sorel Friedman teaches English language and culture to a new generation of diverse students, francophone and others, in a French-language university - with astounding results.” 3M National Teaching Fellowship
