Agenda for the day

Faculty who currently use Top hat in a few unique ways will share insights on topics such as the use of technology in the classroom, techniques to improve engagement and the use of interactive content outside of the classroom.

This session will include advanced techniques that fit to many pedagogical styles including using Top Hat in a flipped classroom, for group work and in a more traditional lecture.
