Several campus events are scheduled annually with a focus on teaching and learning with technology.
The Center for Teaching and Learning will be designating a few months out of the year to help you develop a toolbox full of instructional strategies and technology solutions for some common academic questions. Each month will feature a different technology, and you can sign up for a time for an instructional designer to meet with you for personalized training on that tool.
Whether your course is on campus or online, these Teaching with Technology meetings will offer hands-on instruction and discussion about how to get students to do their work.
Coordinator is Keeta Holmes, Instructional Designer and Assistant Director, Center for Teaching and Learning, 314-516-7134; email, email@example.com.

Faculty, staff, and graduate students are invited to submit proposals on innovations in technology, teaching, and research. Presentation options include workshops, concurrent sessions, and poster sessions. Keynote speakers are invited to bring topics supporting each year's conference theme. The conference has been offered free-of-charge to St. Louis Area participants because of generous sponsors and campus vendors. A vendor exhibit is also scheduled to showcase new technologies and pedagogical tools.
