Call for proposals now open for Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium

October 02, 2014

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Faculty and staff are invited to learn and share effective uses of technology to enhance teaching and learning at the free 2015 TLT Symposium. The symposium will take place on Saturday, March 21, at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel. There is no registration fee and a continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

The TLT Symposium is an excellent opportunity for you to share with the Penn State community the innovations in educational technology that have been explored over the past year. Faculty and staff can submit proposals to present on these innovations using the online form at http://symposium.tlt.psu.edu/proposals/. We are especially interested in sessions that illustrate how faculty and students are embracing new ideas and approaches to create innovation in teaching and learning. These sessions can be individual presentations, group presentations, panel discussions or hands-on workshops.

Each session should include some discussion of practical aspects such as the tools used, sources of support, best practices and how the application of technology can be transferred to other disciplines. The deadline to submit proposals is Nov. 24, and notification of acceptance will be made no later than mid-January. Those submitting proposals may also register for the event at http://tltsym15.eventbrite.com or by selecting the "Register" button at http://symposium.tlt.psu.edu/

For questions on the proposal submission form and registration, email tltsymposium@psu.edu. For more details on the symposium, including information on keynote speakers who will be announced soon, visit http://symposium.tlt.psu.edu/. The symposium is sponsored by Information Technology Services and the Center for Online Innovation in Learning (COIL).
