Sponsored by the Center for Excellence in Transformative Teaching & Learning (CETTL), the 14th Annual Collegium on College Teaching Practice is seeking presentations about the methods, tools, and assessments college faculty are using to create "Transformation in our Classrooms".
Our theme for 2013 is "Taming the Technology Tiger: It’s All About Student Learning". This year's guest speaker, Dr. José Bowen, author of Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your Classroom Will Improve Student Learning, is an exemplar of technology usage to support student learning. Though Dr. Bowen’s technique is to remove technology from the classroom but leverage its use brilliantly outside the classroom, we are seeking faculty who have used technology in any fashion to engage students, improve learning, and/or create environments and activities in which Transformative Learning can occur. We want you to share the techniques, tools and assessments you use in your classrooms, including your successes and even your less-than-successful experiments in using technology to help students learn. We’re especially interested in how technology usage can assist in building environments and/or activities where Transformative Learning is facilitated.
