Did you know that PowerPoint, the prime tool for classroom presentations, has hidden potential for truly interactive learning activities, such as icebreakers, motivational illustrations and even games? Instructors are invited to find out more at “The Surprising Uses of PowerPoint to Increase Student Engagement,” a Faculty Learning Community, scheduled for noon Friday, Feb. 17, in Room 199 Toomey Hall.

Klaus Woelk, interim chair of the chemistry department and winner of the UM System’s Innovative Teaching Award, will present an interactive presentation about enhancing learning in the classroom using a tool most instructors already are familiar with. This brown bag event is sponsored by CERTI and EdTech. Dessert and drinks will be provided. RSVP to Diane Hagni at hagnid@mst.ed by noon Thursday, Feb. 16, to reserve a spot.
