DELTA Showcase to highlight teaching with technology

Pioneering digital education theorist, researcher George Siemens to give keynote address

Last year, the Provost's Office awarded Digital Education and Learning Technology Acceleration grants to six innovative projects that tap the potential of digital technology to enhance teaching and learning at Johns Hopkins. On March 28, those six projects will be on display at Homewood's Charles Commons as part of the Provost's Teaching with Technology DELTA Showcase.

In addition to highlighting the DELTA grant recipients' work, the event will feature opening remarks by Provost Sunil Kumar and a keynote address by pioneering digital education theorist and researcher George Siemens. Breakout session topics will include universal design for learning; conducting educational research; massive open online courses, known as MOOCS; and digital restoration in the humanities.

Siemens is among the most highly regarded and insightful thinkers in digital education. He is particularly interested in the ways that recent technological advances affect teaching and learning and in understanding the transformational implications for universities, their students, and their faculty. He is the author of Knowing Knowledge, executive director of the LINK Research Lab at the University of Texas at Arlington, and founding president of the Society for Learning Analytics.

The showcase, which includes lunch, is free, but you must register in advance.
