The Google for Education teamwill be visiting our campus onWednesday, September 12th. Their goal for this visit is to understand a day in the life of our faculty, students and staff in order to gain a better perspective on our community's experiences with technology and to inform product development. They're also eager to hear any feedback on existing products you may already be using.
During their visit, the team from Google is interested in participating in the following activities with faculty:
The team from Google would like us to schedule them to observe classes, specifically those that will be integrating technology into the instruction for that day. If you teach on this date and plan on incorporating technology into the classroom activities, please let me know if you would be willing to have members of the Google team come observe your class.
Google for Education is looking for 10 instructors to participate in short research study for a new higher ed product. The sessions will take 20-30 minutes and involve answering a few questions and completing a simple task. No materials needed!
In addition to classroom observations, the Google team would like to meet with faculty to discuss the use of technology for teaching and learning and to solicit general feedback and perspective on the Google for Education tools as well as learn about other instructional technology needs.
Please RSVP by Friday, September 7thif you are interested in participating in one or more of the listed activities. To RSVP, please fill in this quick form: https://goo.gl/forms/9a8jGTNxdmW8u6892
An updated announcement will be posted to the community once the day's schedule has been finalized. You will be contacted personally if you are scheduled to participate in a classroom visit or usability testing.
