ABSTRACT

“Instructional technology” has historically been regarded as supplying projectors and sound systems in traditional classrooms. As newer, interactive technologies have evolved, so has our understanding of the powerful ways these tools can support teaching and learning in effective ways. An interactive learning environment is one in which instructors utilize technology to engage and interact with students, moving away from  more linear concepts of knowledge acquisition. As new technologies emerge and become integrated into our environment, they can become instrumental to the way we learn and conduct research. The goal of the Learning Technology Expo is to explore the way new technologies can greatly enhance learning environments.  It is the opportunity to explore the intersection between technology and pedagogy. To explore these questions and more, join other members of the Stevens community for the 2014 Learning Technology Expo and conference, which will feature interdisciplinary perspectives on teaching and learning with technology at Stevens.
