Engaging Students Through Technology 2012 Symposium
(03-OCT-12)

Fifth Annual Symposium
Friday, October 26, 2012, 10 am to 3 pm

Inside Out: Using Technology to Enhance Classroom Interactions

The 2012 symposium has faculty and instructors as its primary audience and explores ways to engage with your students at a deeper level:
  • How can social media enhance your face-to-face interactions with students?
  • How can video and collaboration tools help your students demonstrate their mastery of concepts?
  • How can tech tools free up valuable class time for you and your students, and what can be done with this time? The symposium will include a faculty panel, a student panel, lunch and an unconference-style afternoon where participants propose sessions. Faculty presenters include Al Filreis, Shannon Lundeen and Peter Struck from the School of Arts and Sciences and Connie Scanga from the School of Nursing. Peter Decherney from the School of Arts and Sciences will moderate the undergraduate student panel. 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.
