Things Worth Sharing by ITSS

ITSS's Academic Technology and Course Design Team shares updates and programming with our faculty and student community every week. Our team of technologists and instructional designers is developing a blog/space to store and archive our notes for future reference, exploration, and updates.

#ThingsWorthSharing Events!

We are excited to announce #ThingsWorthsharing events, a monthly informal gathering about teaching and technology. Each event will explore technologies, and teaching strategies, and offer networking and shared solutions. Stay for as little or as much as you want. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

What do we talk about in these conversations? Everything including: … engagement and communication, AI, 3D Printing, Universal Design, assessments, active learning strategy, scaling courses for large enrollment, challenges in delivering hybrid lectures, VR & AR headsets, video capture tools… we could go on and on and on!

Upcoming events: 

All meetings are in Kirby Plaza 175 from 10:30 to noon. Dates for Spring 2024 are 

  • January 24,
