The purpose of the FTS is to highlight faculty who utilize technology in the classroom, and provide them an opportunity to share, peer-to-peer, from their experiences. This has proven to be a great way to collaborate, educate and expand the use of technology on campus. Today’s classroom is a dynamic environment that engages the student in a variety of learning experiences; many of those experiences make use of technology. Several of our faculty members are already using creative methods to allow students to achieve success and we proudly display their hard work at the annual Faculty Technology Showcase.
The agenda for this year’s showcase has been expanded to cover a range of topics, including hearing from our very own faculty about their experience using creative methods (technology or theory) in the classroom. There will also be numerous hands-on activities. Our Keynote speaker, Mr. Joe Ruhl, plans to engage you with practical suggestions to get the most out of your students. His topics are: The Effects of Technology in the Classroom on Human Relationships ("What's Love Got To Do With It?") and Student Choice (What Can Student-Directed Learning Look Like?).
