Held on Wednesday, May 2, 2018, this event brought together more than 120 faculty, staff, and students from GVSU, including guests from Cornerstone University, Davenport University, Western Michigan University, and Grand Rapids Community College.
Put simply, this event was all about celebrating faculty innovation at the intersection of teaching, learning, and technology!
For 17 years, the Teaching & Learning with Technology Symposium has provided an outstanding opportunity for faculty to showcase how they’re putting technology to use in their teaching to support student success and retention.
This year, in addition to ePosters, a brand new “Technology Test Kitchen” was offered, full of tasty #edtech recipes.
TEACHING AND LEARNING WITH TECHNOLOGY AWARD
Always a highlight at this event is the presentation of the Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center’s Teaching and Learning with Technology Award. Congratulations to Rosemary Cleveland, senior affiliate faculty of education, and Andrew Korich, associate professor of chemistry, as this year’s award recipients!
OER @ GVSU
At the symposium, Dean Annie Bélanger shared how GVSU University Libraries support the adoption and creation of open educational resources (OER) through advocacy, education, curation, and library publishing services. Further, she provided insight as to the importance of OER as a critical component of liberal education.
Thank you to all of the presenters and attendees for an awesome afternoon of connecting, learning, and sharing – all focused on enhancing teaching practices and the effective use of technology to support student success.
