Transformations: Research and Teaching in the Digital Age

Emerging technologies are having a transformational impact on what we learn, where we learn, how we learn, and who can learn.  Come join us as College of  Education and Campus faculty showcase their research and teaching experiences and allow us to explore how these activities are enhanced and impacted by  technologies and digital media.

Seminars are held on a bi-monthly basis on Wednesdays from 11-12:30 in Room 10 Education.
Faculty will present from 11-11:45 and staff from the Learning Technologies Unit will provide hands-on demonstrations of technologies related to the talk from 11:45-12:20.  Join us in this intellectual and demonstrable pursuit of understanding of technology and digital media.
