Call for Presenters for Teaching With Technology Week

The Office of Technology for Teaching and Learning (OTTL) is calling for presenters for our third annual Teaching With Technology Week, to be held August 12-16.

We are looking for a variety of presentation formats including standard presentations, panel discussions, hands-on demonstrations and more! TWT Week topics can include more than you might think. Here are some ideas to spur your creative juices:

  • Student engagement tips, tools and strategies
  • Best practices for discussion forums
  • Using video to enhance your face-to-face or online class
  • Creating engaging synchronous class sessions
  • Strategies and tools to deter, prevent, and identify student cheating
  • Strategies for incorporating group work into online courses
  • Share your research on teaching strategies or technology
  • Any ideas related to teaching and learning are welcome!

Please consider sharing what you are doing in your classes, face-to-face or online, at our growing annual event. It’s a great opportunity to collaborate with your colleagues and highlight your classroom innovations.

We are testing a different format this year based on feedback and attendance patterns of past events. This year, we will hold two days of face-to-face workshops (Monday and Tuesday) and two days of webinars (Wednesday and Thursday) as opposed to a mixture throughout the week. Friday will be reserved for appointments and walk-ins for faculty wanting one-on-one help with their courses. We are hoping this will allow for maximum attendance and allow presenters to focus and design their presentation for the format selected. Presenters can select the day, time and format that suits them best.

Sessions can be up to 45 minutes in length including Q&A. Submit your presentation proposals here. You must be signed in to your Wilkes account to access the form. Submission are due by May 15. Any questions, please contact Kristine Pruett at kristine.pruett@wilkes.edu or ext. 4676.
