Tools for Richer Teaching

The following resources and links were created to support a Professional Development presentation for the faculty of the Department of Health Restoration and Care Systems Management at the UT Health Science Center School of Nursing, on February 15, 2013.

The presentation show above were created using Prezi, a web-based “cloud computing” tool for creating dynamic presentations which is particularly good at expressing concepts when spatial/visual relationships can be used help convey meaning.  You can step through the presentation above by using the arrows at the bottom of the presentation display, or use the icon in the lower right corner to display full-screen.  You can also link directly to this presentation on Prezi.

Links to additional resources discussed in the presentation:

Note: this is not intended to be a comprehensive list of applications for these purposes; it’s intended to spark discussion, and barely scratches the surface of what’s available.  Health Science Center faculty who would like to discuss needs or ideas for these or other tools, please feel free to contact your friendly librarian for further consultation.
