ECU Faculty and Staff: We have received a number of great proposals so far and there’s still one more week to go. Some of this year’s Think-In buzz words include community-engagement, transformation, interaction, collaboration technologies and assessment strategies. The call for proposals is open until February 22nd, and you are invited to participate in this exciting event. The Think-In is a great opportunity to network with colleagues and see some of the innovative strategies and learning technologies faculty are using to teach.
Think-In 2013 will be held in Joyner Library on April 3rd from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The event will showcase faculty who use technology to enhance their teaching in both face-to-face and distance education courses. This year’s format will include poster sessions, 40-minute presentations, and a few un-conference events.
The Think-In always proves exciting and draws a crowd. Comments from your peers illustrate the value of the Think-In technology showcase:
- “There was a useful focus on specific innovation/applications, and very engaging, helpful presenters.”
- “One of the obvious strengths was in networking and learning about the work of the other presenters.”
- One of the strengths of the Think-In…“Diversity and collaboration of technology use. The chance to share my experiences and learn from others.”
Mark your calendars and submit your proposal today! To learn more, please visit Think-In 2013. Presentation proposals are due February 22nd, and you can access the proposal form here. If you have any questions, please contact Ginny Sconiers at email@example.com. If you are new to ECU or have never attended a Think-In, check out the highlights and webcast on the Think-In website.
