Technology in education continues to transform our teaching and learning practices; and with that comes the increasing pressure of faculty adapting to emerging technology and embracing the ubiquitous possibilities it offers. In this session, participants will learn about applying innovative and cutting edge technology tools that can be used to move learning beyond the traditional Learning Management Systems we use in Higher Education. The result is improved academic performance of students, an engaged community that connects students and faculty, and a 21st-century learning experience that paves the way to life-long learning.

Come to a session that will focus on exploring five student-centered pedagogical practices that encourage interdependent learning skills through revolutionizing student engagement and interaction with course content through the purposeful integration of educational technology. Explore current trends that move learning beyond the classroom walls while creating a community of learning that focuses on student autonomy and choice. You will leave this session with a wealth of platforms and tools that can:

  • Amplify student engagement and enhance the holistic learning experience

  • Innovate teaching through expanding learning beyond the classroom walls

  • Use specific strategies and free tools that are easily accessible

  • Strengthen a learner-centered community
