January 25, 2013
Featuring Dr. Bryan Alexander
Keynote "Futurism in Higher Education: Melding Tradition and Technology"
Can the landscape for teaching and learning in the traditional classroom coexist with constantly changing technology?
Social media, distance education, mobile devices, and e-books have already transformed our culture, and are nowreshaping higher education. In this talk, Bryan Alexander will discuss how we can honor our educational values and traditions, while still incorporating new methodologies to enhance both the teaching and learning experiences.
Demonstrations of Innovative Technologies at BCC
In this session, BCC faculty will conduct mini-presentations showcasing techniques they currently utilize in their classroom to incorporate technology. Faculty will be asked to discuss the technologies used, how long it took to develop and implement the technology and the response of students.
"Emerging Technology on a Shoestring Budget" (Encore presentation by Bryan Alexander!)
Opportunities for incorporating new and emerging technology into teaching and learning have been exploding in recent years. Technology, however, comes at a price- in time, in budget, in expertise, and in changes to practices and systems. In his talk, Bryan Alexander will introduce possible sources for learning about and obtaining low-cost emerging technologies, describe how to evaluate technologies for our institution and situation, and give suggestions of how to efficiently implement technology into both the traditional and online classroom.
