Mike Kasprzak, TATP Curriculum Developer
Mariana Jardim, Faculty Liaison, Teaching, Learning and Technology 

When incorporating technology-based activities in the classroom, we sometimes allow the technologies themselves to drive decisions about pedagogy, rather than look at how to achieve the desired learning outcomes for a particular course. This can result in “technology for the sake of technology” with little or no positive effects on teaching and learning outcomes (Deal, 2007). This session will discuss how to effectively integrate technology into courses to align with course outcomes. We will also explore student engagement techniques, emerging teaching with technology trends in higher education and university guidelines.
