Stories of experience (and especially success) with bridging technology into the learning encounter are particularly welcome.

The symposium offers an opportunity to share and learn about innovative uses of technology in teaching and learning in the liberal arts and the professions. We hope to create new connections among all participants – faculty, staff and students – who are interested in exploring technology tools to enrich and enhance teaching and learning.

The event will feature sharing by faculty and students who have been teaching and learning in our Technology Intensive Courses as a part of the USC Upstate Student Technology Enrichment Program Quality Enhancement Plan. An exciting new exhibition will showcase exemplary student work in TI courses.

  1. Stories of experience to inform learning & teaching practice
  2. Strategies to develop explore and develop digital literacy
  3. Innovative projects for enhancing/enriching learning with technology tools
