Surviving and Thriving in the Age of Technology-Enhanced Learning

With every new iteration of technology, we create generations of students whose primary media "language" for learning and interacting with the world is different than the generation before it. In the last five years, technologies like online homework, personalized learning software, mobile devices, learning analytics, OER, and MOOCs have been chipping away at the corners of higher education and traditional teaching. Technology-enhanced learning is here to stay and it will alter formal education, like it or not. This is a guide to navigating and thriving in this new world and preparing yourself and students for what is to come.

Who attends?

ITLS brings together over 250 faculty, instructional support staff and administrators from around the Houston area for a fast-paced, one-day conference. Who should attend? Anyone willing to explore the affordances of educational technology, embrace universal design strategies to create accessible learning environments for all students, create out-of-the-box active learning experiences, and connect with colleagues from disciplines you rarely get the chance to speak with.

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.
