Learn about the state of digital texts at an Ignite! event on October 24, 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., in Odegaard Library, room 220. UW faculty and staff share how they have engaged students in new forms of reading, brought assignments to life, improved student outcomes, and built text and simulation systems from scratch. Ignite! sessions are fast-paced—presenters have exactly five minutes to share stories, ideas and strategies. The event begins with brief lessons learned from the recent UW-IT eTextbooks pilot. Learn more.
