2011 Engaging Students Through Technology Symposium

The fourth annual Engaging Students Through Technology
October 28, 2011 10am - 2:30pm

The 2011 symposium tackles two broad questions:

  1. How should I use technology, in my classroom and outside my classroom, to engage my students?
  2. How should I manage the technology (laptops, smart phones, tablets, etc.) that my students bring to my classroom?

The symposium includes a faculty panel, a student panel, lunch, discussion and hands-on sessions. Registration is open for Penn faculty and instructors. Interested graduate students can email wic1@pobox.upenn.edu to be included on a space-available basis. Register now!
