Would you like to use technology even more effectively to enhance student learning and engagement? Over the past ~18 months, teams of faculty, staff, and students have been exploring how technology can solve specific teaching challenges in their courses. Come be inspired by the interesting approaches they have taken and “kick the tires” of the on-line resources they have developed to enhance student learning! (Technical assistance on projects provided by Rogene Schnell, Annette McNamara, and CBS Research and Learning Technology.)
All authors/designers will briefly describe the goals, approaches, progress, and highlights of their project.
