More than 200 faculty/staff have registered to attend the Teaching, Learning, and Technology Showcase 10 a.m.-1 p.m. today (Tuesday, March 1) in the K-State Student Union Ballroom. Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.

Walk-ins are allowed, so faculty who only have an hour can still drop by to learn about IT tools and resources their colleagues are using. The first 200 faculty/staff to enter the ballroom will win a Varney’s gift card.

Although the event is come-and-go, many will likely stay the entire time to see:

  • 25 faculty sharing IT tools they use (and how others can, too)
  • 8 prize drawings (from gift cards to a 46-inch Sony BRAVIA TV)
  • 5 vendors demoing their products (Cytek, Dell, Microsoft, Turning Technologies, and the Union Computer Store)
  • 3 mini-presentations on Facebook (10 a.m.), clickers (11 a.m.), and iPad web apps (noon) to enhance teaching and learning

See the Teaching, Learning, and Technology Showcase blog for more details.
