Please join other faculty, students and staff to discuss your expectations, experiences and thoughts about technology use inside and outside of the classroom. There's so much to learn from each other! We'll have lunch, time for informal conversation, then participate in a facilitated group discussion.
Be prepared to share your thoughts on what technology faculty expect students to use in and outside the classroom for teaching and learning. Students should also be prepared to share what technology you expect faculty to use in class and outside the classroom for teaching and learning.
