Join Us:  May 28, 2015

Join the CTL and UW-IT for 5-minute lightning talks presented by Technology Teaching Fellows who transformed traditional courses to hybrid or online courses.  Faculty members from a wide range of disciplines will describe, at warp speed, some of the techniques that transformed their courses.

Funded by the Office of the Provost, the Technology Teaching Institute received support from the Center for Teaching and Learning and UW-IT Academic Services so that Fellows could re-invent courses and collaborate across disciplines.

This event is sponsored by:  Office of the Provost, the Center for Teaching and Learning, and UW-IT Academic Services.

Light snacks and beverages will be served.
