Second Annual Teaching With Technology Fair Videos - 2011

The presentations of our guest speakers at the April 2011 Second Annual Teaching with Technology Fair are now available for viewing. Thanks to our Instructional Media Services staff – Jim Yocom, Joel Langston and Joe Haase – and our UCET staff, particularly Amy Pawlosky, for coordinating the video stream project. Thank you, once again, to our guest presenters for doing the presentations and for agreeing to have their videos posted on our website.

The Teaching with Technology Fair is a collaboration of UCET and Distance Learning. The Tech Fair showcases how our faculty integrated instructional technology tools with course development and teaching, and also launches the Call for Proposals for the Teaching with Technology SEED Grant. The SEED (Software and Equipment for Engagement and Discovery) Grant provides faculty with instructional technology tools and is funded by Distance Learning.
