Feedback from Past Events on Teaching with Technology

I appreciated the disciplinary breadth represented – from arts to physical science to social science. I think we benefit from paying attention to practices outside our own discipline/area. It helps us explore the boundaries of the possible.

This was a very well-run event! Kudos to the organizers. Thank you for preparing such a professional and informative day and providing it all for free.

It was really valuable to hear and see examples of how innovative instructors have been thinking about and experimenting with various digital tools and teaching strategies this year! I really appreciated some of the lightning talks…and I thought the keynote set the tone really well for a compassionate form of pedagogy.

It was great to have real examples of how instructors used different technology in their courses. I think it is a useful way to have the upper hand for troubleshooting in my own teaching.
