    Collaborative Problem Solving 

    Facilitator: Ian August

    Thursday, April 19th , 2018  6PM

    Location: Henry Schein, Melville, NY 
    If you could solve one challenge in your line of work what would it be? In this workshop you will collaborate in groups to come up with solutions to challenges we face in our work environment. While I enjoy a good lecture, some of the best workshops I have been to asked the participants to work together to come up with solutions to an issue. So bring some challenges you would like to solve and get ready for a highly interactive, engaging night of collaboration with your peers. You must pre-register for the event. If you do not pre-register, then the security at Henry Schein will not let you enter the building. 

    Ian August joined St. Johns University as an instructional designer in June 2017 and works with faculty designing interactive and student centered online learning experiences. He brings 12 years of higher education experience to his current role, having served as an instructional technologist at SUNY Old Westbury College (2005 – 2013), and an instructional designer and educational technologist at SUNY Maritime College (2013 – 2017). August has extensive experience collaborating with faculty in the design and development of online and hybrid courses, facilitating workshops and integrating technology into online learning environments.

    August earned his B.S. in Political Science from SUNY Old Westbury College and his M.S. in Education from the University at Albany. His research interests include the role of student motivation in achievement, how interaction and engagement impact learning, exploring creative pedagogies, and change management.
