Eliminating the Handout: Paperless Teaching and the Less-Paper Reality
Patrick Burns will lead a conversation with the group on best practices and reasonable strategies for eliminating handouts and adopting eBooks in the classroom. He will share his experiences of the ups and downs he’s encountered this semester in his Intermediate Latin class of going paperless and using online material. During discussion, the group will share their own experiences and similar experiments with paperless teaching and computing in the classroom. In addition to instructors using online textbooks, this discussion may be of special interest to language teachers using online dictionaries and grammars, as well as for any teacher using out-of-print and out-of-copyright material mainly available online.

This approach not only develops students’ versatility with a variety of digital tools, it encourages them to become better communicators and collaborators.
