By: | May 2, 2019

The upcoming UB Tech® conference, June 10-12 in Orlando, will feature a program track dedicated to instructional technology, with sessions on leveraging web and videoconferencing, launching a new learning management system, creating tech-based OER courses, rewiring instructors’ brains for online teaching, and more.

Among the presenters at these 10 instructional technology sessions are representatives from Lynn University in Florida, Pace University in New York, Marist College in New York and Pennsylvania State University. Sponsored presentations in this track include sessions by HP and ClassLink.  

Attendees interested in learning about Penn State’s CoAction Learning Lab will find out how this international collaboration of schools is exploring the ways that emerging technologies shape teaching and learning. Launched in 2018, this pilot leads 19 universities and colleges to develop a community of faculty, students and technology leaders with a shared vision for innovation in higher education.

In the Instructional Technology track session entitled “Increasing Learning Equity With an Uncommon Program in Higher Ed, 1-to-1 iPads,” Maryville University’s Apple teacher and instructional technologist will discuss how the Missouri institution’s 1-to-1 iPad initiative challenges the historical norm and helps students thrive. Participants will learn how this program allows each student to access information in a way that best suits their learning style, providing them with the opportunity to succeed in their given discipline.
