Are you a faculty or staff member who has been using technology in innovative ways to enrich teaching, learning, and/or research? We encourage you to share your story and submit a proposal to present at the 2016 Penn State Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium, which will be held on March 19, 2016 at the Penn Stater Conference Center in University Park.
Proposals for the 2016 TLT Symposium must be submitted by Monday, Nov. 9, so make sure you send your ideas in soon!
Proposals can be submitted at http://symposium.tlt.psu.edu/proposals/.
This is a wonderful opportunity for faculty and staff to not only share their innovative approaches to teaching and learning over the past year, but to demonstrate how their work aligns with the Transforming Education and Leveraging Digital Innovation thematic priorities outlined in the University Strategic Plan.
We are looking for individual or group proposals that also align with the following topic areas below. However, we welcome any ideas you have that may not be listed!
We want to hear about your approaches to moving students beyond just listening to lectures or reading text to help them learn better and remember what they learn.
How have you re-imagined spaces for students to learn? We want to hear about your work with designing spaces that optimize student engagement and learning, along with communication, collaboration, and accessibility.
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
Tell us about your research exploring the impact and outcomes of teaching with technology.
Are you a faculty member who has been involved in the piloting of Canvas? We want to hear about what you have learned through using Penn State’s new ANGEL replacement in your classroom.
Accessible and Open Education Resources
What approaches have you used to make learning resources accessible for all students? Have you found new open access resources that will support student learning better?
Emerging Technologies, Designs, and Processes
Have you been leveraging cutting edge technology to help your teaching? Topics in this area could include virtual reality, gamification, Beam presence, and more!
On the fence about submitting a proposal? There are several benefits to presenting at the Symposium, including:
- Showcasing your amazing work with teaching with technology to more than 500 peers
- Sharing your best practices in teaching and with tech applications, collaborative work, etc.
- Raising your visibility as an expert in the world of higher education
- Adding that you presented at a major conference to your resume
- Gathering collaborative ideas from your peers to further your work with teaching with technology
