Engaging Students Through Technology 2010

The Weigle Information Commons presents the Third Annual Symposium
Friday, October 15, 2010, 10:30 am to 3 pm

We live today in a state of “continuous partial attention”. Instant access to people and information can both engage and distract us. New tools break down classroom boundaries and change the nature of college education. This year's symposium explores the creative ways faculty are integrating technologies into teaching, the challenges they face, and the disruptive nature of mobile technologies in lecture contexts. The day's program will include faculty presentations, hands-on exploration and small-group discussions. The symposium is open to Penn faculty and instructors. Interested graduate students should email wic1@pobox.upenn.edu to be included on a space-available basis.

More information and registration is available on the Weigle Information Commons web site.
