Proposal Title

Going Green: Managing a Paperless Classroom

Proposal Abstract

The learning management system (LMS) at many schools for delivering, tracking and managing education relies on technology-enhanced learning (TEL), what Nichols called “pedagogy empowered by digital technology.” (Mark Nichols, August 2008) This includes the “paperless classroom” in traditional (not online) classes in which faculty and students exchange information and assignments electronically. The paperless non-online classroom pedagogy is designed to improve the efficiency of the learning experience, to contribute to asynchronous learning and to help students develop the electronic skills and competencies they'll need in the post-graduate private sector while contributing to the sustainability efforts of the university. The main objectives of this session are to provide a framework for managing a paperless classroom and to lead a group discussion focusing on best practices, pedagogical issues and “how do I?” questions.
