Looking like you can’t attend the 2010 Penn State
Symposium for Teaching and Learning with Technology? Don’t despair;
thanks to many of the same technologies that will be discussed at the
Symposium, you can still be a part of this great event.

Here are five ways to attend the Symposium without actually
attending the Symposium:

1. View the Keynote Address via
Ustream: 
This year’s
Keynote Speaker is Michael Wesch,
assistant professor of cultural anthropology at Kansas State University. Wesch
is a great speaker, and his keynote can be viewed live on Ustream. The live broadcast will begin at 8:30 a.m. If
you miss it, a video recording of the Keynote will be available on the Symposium site. In addition, selected sessions and the Lunchtime Faculty Panel on Using Social Media to Engage Students will be Ustreamed as well.

2. Follow the Symposium activities via
your favorite social medium:
 Whether you are a
fan of Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Youtube, Blogs at Penn State, or all of them,
you can keep up to speed on Symposium activity via social media. By using the
tag “psutlt” at the social media site of your choice, you can find all of this
content as it is being posted. Since this event is full of social media
enthusiasts, you will likely find up-to-the-minute coverage of the Symposium by
people in attendance.

3. Audio and video recordings of
breakout sessions: 
Many Symposium
breakout sessions will be audio recorded and posted to the site. In addition,
selected sessions will be videotaped and posted on the site as well.

4. Watch videos related to the
Symposium: 
The Symposium
site has several videos that take a look at innovative use of
educational technology by Penn State faculty. In addition, Teaching and
Learning with Technology staff will conduct video interviews during the event
that will also be posted to the site. These will be posted to the Symposium site video
section
 soon after the event
is over.

5. Session
blogging coverage: 
Each session will have a blogger assigned to it. This
blogger will write about the session, and post it to the Symposium Connect
page
. In addition, other attendees will be posting to their own blogs, and
these can be found via the above-mentioned tag “psutlt.”
