Weaving Your Passion into the Process of Education

Tue, Oct 12 2021 3:00pm-4:00pm

Free Admission

The Frankfort Center for Learning and Scholarly Technology invites you to the inaugural EdTech Lecture Series featuring Dr. William Robertson, Professor of Education at the University of Texas at El Paso.

In this workshop, Dr. Robertson will focus on the use of live action and video instruction as a method of content dissemination and to motivate students in learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. Specifically, this area, dubbed “edutainment”, will chronicle different interactions with students, teachers and community members that utilized live action to video as methods of capturing relevant content in student-centered contexts. The fundamental idea is to infuse one’s passion into your methods of teaching, and to inspire others to use their gifts in their education, and thereby connect them to their dreams and aspirations.

Dr. Robertson is a Professor in the Teacher Education Department in the College of Education at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). His academic areas of expertise are in science education, curriculum development and technology integration in the K-12 levels. Additionally, he develops, research and teach materials related to inquiry-based STEM Education, project-based learning, problem-based learning and action science. Dr. Robertson has received a number of prestigious awards including the UT Regent’s Outstanding Teaching Award, as a Fulbright Scholar in Santiago, Chile and the 2016 President’s Meritorious Service Award.
