Technology Tools for Teaching

Dr. Kenneth McFarland, Lecturer, Biology Division

Dr. McFarland manages the biology labs and greenhouses. He has been implementing technology into his classes for many years. His preference is not so much for the “newness” or “cool factor” of a specific tool, as it is the tool’s ability to improve class efficiency for both the student and the instructor, and to enhance class engagement and communication. To that end, Dr. McFarland has been quite pleased with the use of Online@UT, wikis, blogs and clicker technology.
