Elizabeth McGlone, of GSBS, writes about the latest edition of her series of Brown Bag Sessions.
Shortly after commencing my role as a Learning Technologist at GCU, I introduced monthly Brown Bag Sessions for staff. Traditionally, a brown-bag session is a training or information session during a lunch break. The term “brown bag” refers to the packed lunch meals that are brought along by or provided for the attendees. I wanted to provide an informal forum where staff could share ideas and exchange experiences in the use of the embedded tools within our VLE and the different technologies they had used both to enhance their own teaching and increase student engagement.
