Tech Camp

Tech Camp is an informal, day-long, drop-by seminar, held each fall, 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.

Tech Camp for fall 2016 will be held on Wednesday, September 21st at LIB 309. Please click here to register.
