“Writing As/And Technology: Defining and Integrating Instructional Technologies Across the Curriculum”

“In the 21st century, technologies are not only all around us in the form of gadgets and digital devices, but technology itself is a term and a phenomenon that we read about and refer to on a daily basis.  A quick search on the NYTimes.com Web site reveals that technology promises to transform institutions as colossal and seemingly permanent as education, medicine, and finance, and practices as basic and important as how we relate to and communicate with each other and how we read.  And yet, at the center of all of these grand proclamations is this term technology, which is one that refers to not only artifacts, or things, but also processes and systems, which are sometimes mechanical, sometimes digital, and often human and creative.”  In this brief presentation, I discuss writing as one instructional technology that can be used to further explore the question of what technology is.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_separator color=”grey” style=”dashed” align=”align_center” border_width=”2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Concurrent First Sessions (Choose one)” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Open%20Sans%3A300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C600%2C600italic%2C700%2C700italic%2C800%2C800italic|font_style:600%20bold%20regular%3A600%3Anormal”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Room: N-119

“Addressing Textbook Problems with Open Educational Resources (OERs)”

What are the problems with textbooks? Why do students sometimes resist buying and reading them? How can we take advantage of new strategies and platforms to ensure that our students have access to high quality curricular materials? Learn about CUNY wide initiatives and local support to develop open educational resources at City Tech.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Room: G-604

“iPads in the Classroom”

Computer labs are no longer the only way to put the internet in the hands of your students in the classroom. We’ll show you how the math department is using tablets to increase student engagement and maximize the utility of our instructional time. Join us for a hands on demonstration of some of our tablet-powered best practices.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_separator color=”grey” style=”dashed” align=”align_center” border_width=”2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Concurrent Second Sessions (Choose one)” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Open%20Sans%3A300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C600%2C600italic%2C700%2C700italic%2C800%2C800italic|font_style:600%20bold%20regular%3A600%3Anormal”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Room: N-119

“City Tech’s OpenLab: Enhancing the College Experience through Open Digital Technologies”

This interactive session explores how open digital technologies can move beyond delivering content to building networks, experiences, and communities. Drawing examples from the OpenLab – City Tech’s open platform for teaching, learning, and collaborating with 12,000+ members – we will discuss opportunities and challenges suggested by participants and, together, generate creative solutions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_separator color=”grey” style=”dashed” align=”align_center” border_width=”2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Keynote Luncheon” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Open%20Sans%3A300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C600%2C600italic%2C700%2C700italic%2C800%2C800italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Room: N-119

“Both/And, not Either/Or — or When You Come to a Fork in the Road, Take It.”
Online learning does not occur in another realm. What we know about pedagogy, how we care about our students, what matters to us in our fields — all this should come into play when we work with academic technology. We shouldn’t feel that we have to choose between what happens face-to-face and what happens online, particularly because we really don’t get to. Increasingly, the goal is to move (ideally glide) between these spaces and interstices, and to help our students do the same (if they aren’t already ahead of us in that).

“Simulation in the Nursing and Radiology Technology Programs at CityTech”

Simulation is an immersive teaching strategy employed in the health sciences to help bridge the gap between classroom learning and clinical practice. Faculty are able to construct interactive scenarios that simulate important learning experiences that enable students to practice newly acquired knowledge and skills in a safe and relatively low stakes environment. Simulation supports critical thinking including the development of essential decision making skills.
The Nursing and Radiology Technology departments will have demonstrations of the amazing hi-fidelity technology we are using in our simulation labs and how we are using simulation in the education of students.

Presenters: Virginia Curran, Candy Dato, Anthony DeVito, Evans Lespinace, Li-May Li, Eric Lobel, Mary Mantych, Bernard Mohr, Margaret Rafferty, Lisette Santisteban, Issiaka Voudri, Fu Su Xie[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Room: G-604
