“I've been looking all over, but my lecture is not where it used to be!”
Lectures are not where they used to be 30 years ago ... 10 years ago ... or even 3 to 5 years ago. Students are changing, teachers are innovating, and technology is advancing. So, we are going to have a day-long event focusing on one of the foundational elements of higher education: the lecture. Join us as we look at new strategies and new technologies from both the instructor's point of view and the student's perspective. Microlectures with Jing! Annotation with smart technologies! Student recall with Livescribe! And a lot more! Mark your calendars. Lunch will be provided for attendees of this event.

When: Friday, May 21 (10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) - Register
