|Dr. Howell teaching in the Learning Studio at Des Peres Hall.|
Timothy Howell, EdD, ATC, CSCS Clinical Education Coordinator for the Saint Louis University Athletic Training Education Program held the inaugural class in the Learning Studio in Des Peres Hall August 29th, 2011. As part of an “Innovative Teaching Fellowship” award offered through the Reinert Center for Teaching Excellence Dr. Howell, along with three other fellows are teaching in a new learning space on the Frost Campus.
The course Dr. Howell is teaching MAT 560, Athletic Training Administration, in the space. While the course emphasizes organizational and administrative aspects of the athletic training profession being in the learning studio provides opportunities for the students to do so with an infusion of technology. The students will have access to iPads, tablet computers, and a video wall that can present up to three images at a time.
The first class meeting was an opportunity for the professional year 2 (PY2) students to gain a hands on introduction to the iPad2. A variety of technologies will be infused into the athletic training course over the course of the semester, all in a very direct and engaging environment.
