Technologies Enhancing Student Learning

November 8, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

A UCLA Campus Conversation sponsored by the Online Teaching & Learning Initiative

UCLA faculty are rethinking courses based on the ways students learn best and environments that foster that learning. Divisional initiatives are exploring those issues; departments are looking at their curricula; faculty are working with campus support groups to modify their own classes. The Online Teaching and Learning Initiative invites you to participate in a conversation on technology and student learning. UCLA and UC faculty will present many innovative ways to use digital tools to improve student learning and the successes and challenges associated with them. Campus partners in supporting innovative teaching and learning (see below) will be present to answer questions about their initiatives and collect faculty input. We hope to see you there. Please RSVP by November 1.
