Thanks to our dedicated team of sponsors and organizers and our powerful presenters, we have received wonderful feedback from the 2015 Engaging Students Through Technology Symposium. One of my favorite comments inspired the title for this blog post:
“The community of people doing innovative things with tech at Penn is actually quite robust, and I felt like I was reintroduced to it in a really delightful way. We could probably do a better job maintaining that community all year long.”
We brought together over 150 faculty, staff and graduate students from all twelve Penn schools for an intense program of speakers and discussions. Our student survey responses and student and faculty panel presenters inspired conversation.
As our photo album shows, our audience stayed active and engaged throughout a very long Friday. I welcome you to browse the recently-posted presenter slides and videos and share with colleagues. Highlighted tools include Twitter (with Alain Plante and Emily Steiner), the LightBoard (with Phil Gressman), wikis (with Joe Farrell), Panopto lecture recording (with Peter Fader) and a variety of apps and web resources. The playlist below includes 22 videos!
Save the date: The 2016 Symposium will take place on Friday, October 28!
