Presentation Description
In this session we will explore “best practices” that we found in our Technology Fellow program, which is in its 4th semester, here at Temple University. This program uses upper level, high achieving, and technologically savvy undergraduate students to assist faculty members to incorporate technology into their classroom, for the purpose of making learning more engaging, and/or making teaching more efficient/effective. This program bridges the gap between busy faculty members and Temple’s Instructional Support Center as well as Teaching and Learning Center. After a brief presentation about Temple’s Tech Fellow program and a few of its “success stories”, there will be a Question and Answer period.
