TechLearn Faculty Conference 2017
Innovate. Collaborate. Educate.
October 19, 2017
On October 19th faculty from all five schools will join together at the West LA campus to collaborate with their peers at this half-day conference. We're interested in hearing about the innovative uses of technology from all around the University. What technologies do you use in your course? How has it impacted student learning? What were some of the challenges you faced and how did you overcome them?
We invite you to share your insights and knowledge with colleagues as a presenter! You can submit your presentation proposal quickly and easily online. Through innovation and collaboration, we can make Pepperdine stronger together.
We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker - Kyle Bowen is Director of Education Technology Services at Penn State University, where he leads university efforts for effective uses of technology for teaching and learning. Kyle oversees a portfolio of services including instructional design, faculty research support, learning spaces, digital media development, and the exploration of emerging technologies. Formerly the Director of Informatics at Purdue University, he shaped and led the university's strategy to advance student success through new and innovative technologies.
Saving the best for last, our closing speaker will be Dr. Christopher Heard, Associate Professor of Religion at Pepperdine University and Director-Elect of the Center for Teaching Excellence at Seaver College.
