Academic Technologies to lead faculty showcase

The Information Technology Department is presenting the University of Miami’s annual faculty showcase on Thursday, Oct. 17.

Faculty can attend the event for a learning and networking opportunity. The faculty-led conference intends to spread new ideas and technologies with the goal of enriching both faculty and student experience.

The free event will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the third floor of the Donna E. Shalala Student Center. Breakfast, lunch and other refreshments will be provided throughout the day.

The faculty showcase features “learning circles” led by faculty speakers, promoting the sharing of meaningful teaching strategies.
