Lehigh hosts the 2017 LVAIC Digital Tools Workshop

LVAIC will host a one-day conference at Lehigh University on Wednesday, May 24, 2017. This event will include a series of short "lightning round" talks (no more than 5 to 10-minutes each)and "hands-on workshops". The lightning round talks will focus on the pedagogical purposes of various digital tools that have been used to enhance teaching and learning (rather than on the mechanics of the tool itself). The "hands-on workshops" will give participants the opportunity to try new tools, discuss potential pedagogical benefits of using those tools, and strategize about integrating such tools into their courses.
