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.
For 2012-13, we will not have "Regular Grants". Instead, IT Grants will focus on proposals for converting lecture classes into a more active (and interactive) format with a significant technology component.
The Weigel Information Commons (WIC) is hosting their annual symposium on Engaging Students Through Technology this Friday, October 26. The theme of this year's symposium is “Inside Out: Using Technology to Enhance Classroom Interactions.”
We're co-sponsoring THATCamp@Penn 2012, an "unconference" for people interested in technology and the humanities.
THATCamp@Penn provides an opportunity for faculty, graduate students and academic professionals in different disciplines — and with diverse backgrounds, roles, skills and interests — from across campus to meet in person for a day of informal discussion and collaboration.
The Weigle Information Commons (WIC) invites you to a day of exploring gadgets. They will host their Spring 2012 Gadget Day on Wednesday, April 11. The day's program will feature Apple iPads but also include tips for using Firefox, several mobile phones, Tumblr and scanning.
