Registration open for Provost's Teaching With Technology DELTA Symposium

Those now using innovative technology in the classroom are invited to submit presentation proposals

Registration is now open for the Provost's Teaching With Technology DELTA Symposium that will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5, at Charles Commons on the Homewood campus.

Organized in collaboration with the Center for Educational Resources, the showcase will highlight the projects funded by the second round of Digital Education and Learning Technology Acceleration grants and will also feature presentations, a poster session, and networking opportunities. Lunch will be provided, and a reception will follow.

If you are currently using innovative technology in the classroom, you are invited to submit a proposal to present at the event.

The keynote address will be delivered by Bryan Alexander of Georgetown University. Alexander is an internationally known futurist, researcher, writer, speaker, consultant, and teacher, working in the field of how technology transforms education. His latest book, Academia Next: The Futures of Higher Education, was published in January by Johns Hopkins University Press. A book signing will follow the keynote.

"We are thrilled about the opportunity presented by this symposium, and we look forward to provoking conversation, fostering emerging networks, and inspiring the next wave of creative thinking about teaching with learning technology," wrote Sunil Kumar, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, and Stephen J. Gange, executive vice provost for academic affairs and a professor of epidemiology, in an email inviting colleagues to the event.

The event is free, but space is limited so online registration is required.

Portions of the event will be webcast and recorded for those who are unable to attend.

The call for proposals and submission instructions are on the symposium website. Submissions are due Friday, Feb. 28.

The Provost's DELTA initiative is intended to unleash the potential of digital technology and encourage the Johns Hopkins community to think creatively about how to enhance its shared teaching and learning enterprise.

More information about the university's digital initiatives is available on the Office of the Provost website.
