Each Spring, 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. 

Last year, the symposium featured a keynote by Provost Maria Cimitile. Missed the symposium last year? Check out the highlights and photos on our eLearning blog and watch the keynote!

This year, we plan to have an updated "Technology Test Kitchen" where you can learn about a variety of technologies through innovative "recipes".

Make plans to join us for an awesome afternoon of connecting, learning, and sharing - all focused on enhancing teaching practices and the effective use of technology to support student success.
