Professional Development Day - Unconference
eLCC will be holding its annual professional development day on Friday, November 17 from 9 am - 3 pm at the Idea Forge at the University of Colorado- Boulder.
We're going very Unconference even to the point of not providing lunches. We encourage brown-bagging it but the University of Colorado-Boulder cafeteria will be open. Einstein Bagels and Starbucks are really close.
If you are unfamiliar with Unconference or Edcamps, these are self-organizing events. The only pre-scheduled event we will have is the "hot topics" during the brown bag lunch. We'll start taking ideas but will decide on these in morning of the conference.
Space is limted to the first 75 people to sign up - so don't wait!
Teaching and Learning Technology Syposium
Faculty and staff are invited to register for the 6th annual Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium (TLTS) to be held Friday, October 13, 2017, on the Auraria Campus, hosted by the MSU Denver Educational Technology Center. This year’s symposium introduces an exciting new format you won’t want to miss: instead of a traditional session and track-based event which is passive in nature, TLTS 2017 will challenge you to think critically, work collaboratively, and take an active role in shaping the event. In a single day, attendees will collaboratively Discover, Frame, Imagine, Prototype, Engage, and Reflect upon unique solution designs focused through the lens of one of three interest groups: Creativity & Design, Equity & Social Justice, or Leadership & Vision.
Additionally, the ITS Educational Technology Center (ETC) has been cultivating a collaborative network of partnerships in support of Prospective Innovations in Teaching and Learning Xperiences (PitchLX), to breed innovative thinking and cultivate ideas that meet the ever-changing expectations of students.
Open to all higher education professionals, and driven by a live pitch-off event on Thursday October 12, PitchLX will bring together a broad range of participants to deliver pitches for existing or theorized innovative ideas which have the potential to significantly shape the future of teaching and learning with technology (moonshots welcome). Following each pitch, a panel of expert judges will conduct a live Q&A/critique, and award points based on feasibility, creativity, sound pedagogy, and overall delivery. Prizes will be awarded and resources invested, so innovative thinking and preparation are critical and highly encouraged.
