The Innovative Teaching and Learning Symposium, a joint venture for all four UH System Universities (UH, UH-Downtown, UH-Clear Lake, and UH-Victoria), is designed to bring together individuals interested in the review and evaluation of emerging technologies. We are interested in interactive sessions for workshops, discovery sessions, information sessions, and hands-on demonstrations that engage and inform participants.
