The Technology Development Team (TDT) in collaboration with The Center for Excellence in Teaching will be holding the fifth annual EduTech Day on Thursday, November 14, 2013. Our theme “Building for the Future” focuses on how we can integrate technology and pedagogy in response to the increasingly complex and diverse environments faculty will encounter academically and students will encounter professionally. This year’s theme is in part responsive to the college’s plan of strengthening the academic core, which will be reinforced while keeping an eye on emerging trends in the professional world. Among our goals are to foster student-centeredness within the FIT community by focusing on collaborative activities. The event will provide hands-on experience linking best practices in education and in professions with current and emerging trends in technology.
