Teaching & Learning with Technology Symposium

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.

Each Symposium also includes the formal presentation of the university's Teaching & Learning with Technology Award, awarded by the Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center. Whether you're looking for ideas and simply want to celebrate your colleagues' accomplishments, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
