We are getting super excited about hosting the upcoming Technology Showcase during General Session week on August 27! We were unable to host the showcase last year due to the wonderful construction taking place in the Student Center. Now that the space has been renovated, we’ve reserved the Kellogg Room (a.k.a. The Quiet Dining Room) to show off our wonderful faculty and staff use of technology.
Mark your calendars for August 27 from 11 am – 1 pm. We’ll have technology demonstrations, prizes, and (of course) fabulous food. Come speak with other faculty and staff about how they used mobile devices, apps, interactive video chat, customized video, research guides, social media, educational technology tools and so much more!

Nope, not at all. We’re busy with summer classes and gearing up for Fall 2013! We’re only a few weeks in to the summer semester and it’s already going by fast. If you’re working on updating your class content and need a little inspiration, check out Learning Technologies’ Pinterest site. It’s full of great stuff, from boards for Educational Inspiration to Instructional Design to mobile apps – there is plenty to browse through. Pinterest not your thing?

As always, feel free to stop by our offices: 302 LRC, we’re here all summer!
