In its fifth year, Emory's Educational Conference on Academic Technology at Emory (EduCATE) continues the focus on keeping up with technologies that are changing our classrooms and our labs, as well as evaluating them in light of Emory faculty's personal practice.
This year's program (LearnIT!) features two different tracks...
- Features presentations by Emory faculty that focus on how technologies are used in their own teaching and research. These 45-minute sessions are focused towards faculty who are interested in broadening their knowledge of how these varied technologies can be used in their own classroom.
- Will build on the information presented in the See IT! sessions. Staff from AAIT will demonstrate the use of iPods and Personal Response Systems and delve more deeply into Blackboard for those faculty who want to know more.
Attendees from previous EduCATE conferences will notice that the conference is now only one day. The second day had traditionally been a day of training on the technologies highlighted during the first day. Now, in its stead, is a much more thorough schedule of classes and hands-on training that underscore the real-world commitment to incorporating these technologies into personal practice. After you've registered, please make a note of the links on the Registration Confirmation page that detail the times and locations of additional workshops offered by library and AAIT staff.
