Tech Camp

Tech Camp is an informal, day-long, drop-by seminar, held each summer, where various technologies for teaching are demonstrated. Each technology is shown in an academic context, but the "how to" is left for the Technologies for Teaching comprehensive booklet (or follow-up consultations with ATLE on an individual basis, as desired). We focus on showing "what is possible" in these 15-minute parlor sessions.

Fall 2015

Tech Camp will be held on Thursday, October 22nd from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. in Education (EDU) 415.
