ITS Learning Stories is a collection of short online videos about pedagogical innovations and effective practices for teaching, both online and face-to-face. SDSU faculty in a variety of departments demonstrate teaching and learning strategies they’ve invented or adapted and find particularly helpful for promoting student learning. Where instructional technologies are involved, they point to appropriate how-to resources. Check out ITS Learning Stories at https://www.youtube.com/user/SDSUITS including:
