The UW-System Learning Technology Development Council (LTDC) Showcase 2014 will be held virtually April 10-11, 2014. Share your innovations! How are you using technology in education? How are you making a difference? What technologies are you finding successful? How are you engaging your students? How are your students responding to your social media efforts? What makes your class different and successful? How are you collaborating with others? Is collaboration paying off? How are you evaluating your success?

This virtual conference offers an opportunity for sharing your successes and challenges in teaching with technology – in your f2f classroom, online, flex or MOOCs. You will connect with other practitioners without travel expenses and time commitment. Please join us by send a proposal to present or facilitate.

  • Innovative Approaches (Hot Topics) – Tell us about different ways in which you’re working and teaching. Are mobile applications a part of your learning and knowledge portfolio? How have you taken traditional teaching and changed it? Can you share a successful case study?
  • Engagement of Students – How are your students connecting with each other and you? What works now or will work in the future? How is that working? Can you share a successful case study?
  • Faculty Development – How are you supporting your faculty? Are you facilitating learning communities? How are you engaging faculty? Do you have a successful case study to share?
  • How to and Resources – Do you have a skill to share? Have you created a wonderful set of resources for faculty and students? We’re interested in successful case studies; what can you share?
  • Best Practices – Are you using a particular learning technology (or set of technologies) and know through evaluation that it is a definitive use that engages students and promotes learning?
  • Emerging Topics – Do you have a proposal that doesn’t quite fit into the other topics?
