January 25 Ignite! Session AGENDA

Save the date and join us for an Ignite! event on January 25th at 3pm in Odegaard Library, room 220.

We'll kick off this event with an overview of key findings from UW-IT's Triennial Surveys on Teaching, Learning, and Research Technologies. These surveys gather information from faculty members, researchers, teaching assistants, and students at UW-Seattle about how they use technology to do their work; what support and obstacles they experience in using technology; and where they believe the UW should place its resources in the future.

Following the survey overview, several UW faculty will offer Ignite! presentations on innovative uses of technology for teaching and learning. Each 5-minute presentation will be followed by a 5-minute Q&A session.
