On our campus we are constantly surrounded by technology yet we never really take the time to explore the seamless relationship between the academic and the technological. Tech Day is an opportunity for the Tulane community to come together and celebrate the technology that makes life on our campus what it is. It is a day of toys, tech, food and fun. We will have academic and technical presentations as well as games and door prizes. Come learn about the new trends in technology and education with presentations from our faculty and the vendors that provide us with the technology you use every day. Tech Day is free and open to the public, make sure to register for a chance at some of our amazing door prizes.
Antonio Vantaggiato is a Professor of Computer Science and the Director of STEMmED at Universidad del Sagrado Corazón, San Juan, Puerto Rico, where he also founded the distance learning institute. As part of this work, he has led an initiative to build an infrastructure for learning object development for the HETS consortium (www.hets.org), within a group of seven institutions. He also founded the Puerto Rican Congress on Web e-ducation, and organized and held four editions (2002-2005).
In this talk “The Zen of Teaching” Antonio will address the challenges as well as the opportunities that technology presents for higher education. How can online learning be made interactive and engaging and how can we bring these initiatives back into the traditional classroom to find new ways of engaging learners.
