Convergence: where technology & learning meet serves to create awareness about emerging technologies and content creation tools for UCSF faculty and staff engaged in education. It is also a platform to communicate and document the growth and evolution of the UCSF Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE). Readers will have the opportunity to become more informed about the CLE’s present and, more importantly, its future. Readers will also discover and learn more about the wide variety of learning and collaboration tools available at UCSF.
Contributors to the blog vary both in experience and roles at UCSF. They will come not only from the UCSF Library, but we hope from all over campus – from faculty and staff making innovative use of the CLE and other technologies in their teaching, to students using it for a wide variety of collaborative activities. Our hope is to create an engaging reading experience showcasing the many uses of technology for education. Please let us know if you would like to contribute to Convergence.
About the CLE: The Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) provides a framework and toolset designed to support learner-centered environments, collaborative learning, and other collaborative activities at UCSF. Moodle is the anchor system and provides many core functions. The CLE also supports and integrates with other tools, including lecture capture, video hosting, and curriculum management (Ilios) systems.
The UCSF Library’s Learning Tech Group Supports the CLE and a number of related services, including the UCSF Portfolio, an equipment for loan program, and multimedia workstations and software available in the Library Tech Commons (UCSF Library, 2nd Floor, Room 240).
Our mission is to enhance the teaching and learning process at UCSF by empowering faculty, students, and staff to use innovative instructional technologies and eLearning strategies to create learning environments that encourage student engagement.
