More than a decade ago, it was commonplace for an educator to ask students to read and memorize important course materials, and at the end of the semester, administer an exam to assess the retention of that knowledge. But how much did students actually remember after they left the classroom?
Penn State Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) collaborates with faculty to rethink the way courses are taught and explore how new technologies can be adapted to advance student learning.
Come for the fun games and prizes; stay for the informative discussions with faculty who have engaged in teaching and learning research. The Teaching and Learning with Technology Research Carnival will be held on June 19, 2019 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at The Dreamery, on the ground floor of the Shields Building.
This informal event will focus on answering questions from how to generate researchable questions to how innovative technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality, and data science can impact students’ learning experiences.
Participating carnival partners include: The Institutional Review Board (IRB), Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence, Liberal Arts Teaching Group, Center for Excellence in Science Education, TLT Emerging Technologies Group, TLT Data-Empowered Learning Team, TLT Faculty Programs Team, University Libraries, and the Office of Information Security.
Attendance is free to all Penn State faculty and staff. Register for the 2019 Research Carnival today!
