Faculty are invited to learn and share effective uses of technology to enhance teaching and learning at the free Penn State Symposium for Teaching and Learning with Technology. The Symposium will take place on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel, University Park. The theme of this year’s Symposium is “Engaging the Future and the Culture of Teaching and Learning with Technology.” There is no registration fee and a continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Members of the faculty who are using technology to enrich teaching, learning, or research are encouraged to submit a presentation proposal using the online form at https://engage.tlt.psu.edu/symposium2014/. This year’s theme focuses on how faculty and students are driving success by rediscovering the importance of what we do, investing in our community, and focusing on the possibilities ahead. We are especially interested, then, in sessions that illustrate how faculty and students are embracing new ideas and approaches to create innovation in teaching and learning. Please include in your session proposal a description of how your session relates to this year’s theme. These sessions can be individual presentations, group presentations, panel discussions and hands-on workshops.
Each session should include some discussion of practical aspects such as the tools used, sources of support, best practices, and how the application of technology can be transferred to other disciplines. The deadline to submit proposals is November 16, 2013. Notification of acceptance will be made in December 2013.
Those submitting proposals may also register by selecting “Register” in the blue menu bar at the top of the page. For questions on the proposal form submission and registration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. More details on the Symposium, including information on the morning keynote speaker, will be announced soon. The Symposium is sponsored by Information Technology Services.
