Teaching Today

The November edition of Teaching Today is all about gratitude.

In this edition, Provost Shirley Lefever extends her thanks to Wichita State instructors. In addition, Office of Instructional Resources staff and contributors thank those who make our everyday lives at WSU better in large and small ways.

Have a look, and maybe you’ll see your name in a gratitude shout-out section.

Each month, the Office of Instructional Resources publishes a teaching-centered newsletter called Teaching Today. The October issue of Teaching Today addresses the important topic of digital transformation, and we are excited to share this conversation with our campus industry partners.

In this issue, we take on as many aspects of digital transformation as we can with topics such as high-performance computing, the influence of AI on teaching and learning, and practical applications of these technologies with approachable tools like ArcGIS and even some cool Microsoft 365 features. Along the way, we have lots of examples of how humans and AI can partner to create original creative work.

If you are interested in getting future issues of Teaching Today, please subscribe by emailing Wichita State’s Office of Instructional Resources at OIR@wichita.edu.
