Teaching and Learning Technology Roundtable - Oct. 14, 2009

“Teaching, Learning and Technology Roundtables” are on many different campuses at all levels under many different names. Typically, their goals are to bring together faculty and staff from as wide a variety of disciplines as possible to learn about how people in their institutions are using technology for teaching and learning, managing information and the rapid pace of technological change, and solving problems. Most of these groups exist informally and informal, hands-on learning is the preferred method of learning.
