UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — This October, Penn State Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) and the College of Agricultural Sciences will team up for a one-day symposium on digital fluency. Registration for the event is open, and it is free to attend.

"Digital Fluency Symposium: The Future of Teaching, Learning, and Research in a Digital World" will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 2, in Robb Hall of the Hintz Family Alumni Center at University Park. A light breakfast, lunch and refreshments are included with registration.

"The goal of the symposium is to introduce topics and conversations that will develop and define our University community's understanding of digital fluency," said Kyle Bowen, TLT's director of innovation. "Also, attendees will be able to identify resources to support their digital fluency efforts."

Speakers at the symposium will each address a specific theme that contributes to digital fluency, including code competency, design thinking, data visualization, communication and storytelling, diversity and inclusion, and teaching and learning.

Jennifer Sparrow, associate vice president with TLT, is scheduled to give a presentation at the symposium alongside keynote speaker Evan Peck, assistant professor of computer science at Bucknell University; Kristen Beck, lead bioinformatician with the industrial and applied genomics group in the Accelerated Discovery Lab of IBM Research; and others.
