Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium Track

Once again we are partnering with the Finger Lakes Faculty Development Network (FLFDN) to offer a special “Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium” track as part of Ed Tech Day.  The symposium consists of a special series of seminars running throughout the day and features sessions specifically focusing on innovations and best practices in using technology for teaching and learning, as well as scholarship assessing the effect of technology on student learning.

Visit the Symposium page for the schedule and session details.

The Finger Lakes Faculty Development Network, which organizes this special track, is an organization linking people involved in faculty development at campuses in central and western New York.  Bi-monthly meetings rotate among member campuses or through web conferencing.  For more information about FLFDN please contact Wade Pickren, Director, Center for Faculty Excellence at Ithaca College (
