Re-imagining Teaching: Smartphones in the Classroom

Child and Family Studies Professor Sally Hunter along with graduate students Hayley Moran and Nicole Mullican will present their work examining the use of smartphones in the classroom at the UT Teaching and Learning Innovation Symposium: Re-imagining Teaching. The symposium will focus on different methods being used in classrooms across the UT campus to restructure the learning environment toward Gen-Z students.  It will allow faculty and graduate teaching assistants to re-imagine their course structures and teaching methods.

Hunter, Moran, and Mullican will present their findings from the pre-survey data collected from students in CFS 210: Human Development. Throughout this course, students are evaluating various Smartphone Applications that cater to people in a specific stage of life (e.g., early childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, etc…). Students are then imagining and proposing a new app that would better serve their target population. The goal of this innovative teaching technique is to make the course both interesting and meaningful for the students.
