Rewiring the Classroom Conference

February 23, 2013 -
10:00 am to 5:45 pm

“Rewiring the Classroom”, a forum on digital pedagogy for the college classroom, will take place at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, on 23 February 2013.

"Rewiring the Classroom” is a day-long symposium that will focus on critical applications of digital technologies in undergraduate classrooms. Presenters at the conference will offer practical, hands-on experience with new technologies, along with critical discussions about the pedagogical values of these technologies. Topics will include WordPress, Wikipedia, Omeka, recorded sound, public engagement, geographical information systems, and bringing research and archives into the classroom.

This conference is intended for anyone interested in creative and critical applications of technology to undergraduate education – professors, graduate instructors, librarians, information technologists, and other curious folks. We would especially welcome people who want to use digital technologies in their classrooms, but are unsure of how to get started. Our hope is that, no matter where you are in the process of developing digital lesson plans, you will be one step closer by the end of the day!

The closing date for registration is February 18. Register online.
