Register for the 2015 Symposium Lightning Round!

Got 2 Minutes to Spare and a Great Story or Idea to Share?

If so, then please register to present during the Lightning Round at the 2015 Engaging Students through Technology Symposium! The Lightning Round is a series of VERY short (two-minute) talks that  introduce colleagues to an instructional technology or tool that you have used to engage students and enhance your own pedagogical practices. We record the talks for the Penn Libraries YouTube Channel. We hope to avoid “info-mercial” style talks and to encourage sharing technology experiences that may not have worked as anticipated. (The term ‘epic fail’ came up often in our brainstorming sessions…).
