"The Complete Package:
Teaching, Learning, and the Student Experience

Read Chad's Bio

Whether we notice it or not, technology is embedded into everything we do and influences the way we work, interact and learn. Our expectations have been altered by immediacy of communication, streams of information, and consumer-centric services that we engage with every day. Students flow through campuses with heightened assumptions influenced by the technological world that surrounds them—a world increasingly defined by placing people and what they want to achieve at the center of the technology ecosystem that envelops them. A growing number of colleges and universities are examining the complete package—learning, teaching, and the student experience—and rethinking how they scaffold and promote student success. This keynote will share observations and perspectives regarding the technology ecosystem and its impact on learning and teaching, and the emerging holistic approach toward student retention and success.

Why should faculty members attend the Technology Showcase?

  2. Catch demonstrations of technology used in teaching/learning and available on our campus
  3. Find out what kinds of Academic Technology Resources are available in support of teaching/learning/research
  4. New faculty, visit our mock classroom to get hands-on instruction with the technology in your room!
