Faculty use tech to reach new students
Teaching & Technology Day inspires new ways to collaborate in and out of the classroom
Computing & Information Technology, the Office for Teaching & Learning, And University Libraries partnered to bring Teaching & Technology Day to Wayne State University faculty Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018.
Faculty technology trendsetters hosted a panel discussion in Kresge Auditorium about Wayne State's new learning management system, Canvas, and other ways to bring technology into the classroom. Participants discussed how technology can make the classroom inviting to a diverse group of students, and accommodating to disabilities and religious lifestyles.
Vendor representatives from Apple, Dell, Echo360, Microsoft Teams and others demonstrated their tools in the Teaching Commons while faculty were welcome to enjoy light refreshments. The team behind the recently released Wayne State Virtual Experience App passed out VR glasses and demoed their virtual tour of campus.
