Tech Symposium 2017 with Thomas Tobin

Each March, Grand Valley's Teaching & Learning with Technology Symposium provides an opportunity for faculty to showcase how they're putting technology to use in their teaching. Faculty and staff from across the university gather for this afternoon of fun, food, and presentations. Symposiums also include a keynote speech from leading figures in the field of instructional technology.

This year's Symposium was held Wednesday March 22 at the downtown Pew campus. It featured a keynote by Thomas Tobin, Coordinator for Learning Technologies at the Center for Teaching and Learning at Northeastern Illinois University. Dr. Tobin's keynote was titled "Universal Design for Learning: Way Beyond Disabilities."
