UTSA FACULTY: THEN AND NOW

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF FACULTY EXCELLENCE


This exhibition recognizes the legacy of UTSA faculty, who are central to advancing the university’s mission of teaching, research and service. Featured in the exhibit are early portraits of 78 of UTSA’s pioneer tenured/tenure-track professors hired between 1972 and 1978. These individuals, who either completed their careers at UTSA or are still employed by the university, helped shape the curriculum, set academic standards, and significantly impacted the lives of many students throughout UTSA’s 50-year history. We hope that this exhibit elicits fond memories of professors who have made a positive impact on your life.

Each portrait was developed using a printmaking technique called plate lithography, in which the photograph was transferred onto an aluminum plate, then inked and sealed.

Tech * Connect * Ignite!

Transforming education requires us to rethink how we teach and learn. The ISTE Standards act as a roadmap for bold, innovative educators and education leaders to re-engineer their schools and classrooms for digital age learning no matter where they fall on the journey to meaningful, effective ed tech integration. (https://www.iste.org/standards)

Focus: ISTE Educator Standard 5. Designer
Educators design authentic, learner-driven activities and environments that recognize and accommodate learner variability.

For Educators: Designer 5b
Design authentic learning activities that align with content area standards and use digital tools and resources to maximize active, deep learning.



The fastest way to transform presentations into classroom conversations. Imagine if you could engage every student in your class, every day. What if you could instantly see who’s confused and who’s ready for more? That’s the power of Pear Deck. And now, with the Pear Deck for Google Slides Add-on, you can add the magic of formative assessments and interactive questions to your presentations right from Google Slides.

The 5 Interactive Question Types in Google Slides
There are 5 Interactive Slides or Question types.  They allow you to ask every student for their answers, opinions, ideas and creativity.  When you ask students a question through Pear Deck, every student answers on his or her own screen.  You can choose to display answers anonymously on the projector screen and you can see each individual answer on your Teacher Dashboard. With every question type you can put content on the main slide (which will show on the projector screen) and then configure the way students will respond. Content you can put on the main slide area:
• Text
• List
• Image
• YouTube

5 Response Types
