Bronx EdTech Showcase
Faculty Technology Showcase by year:
The Bronx EdTech ShowcaseThis CUNY Education Technology Showcase (held annually in May) promotes and highlights innovative uses of technology to bring students to new levels of engagement and academic performance.
This year's Showcase was held on May 9th, 2014 at Bronx Community College's Hall of Fame Playhouse and the beautiful new North Hall and Library. The Keynote Address by University Director of Academic Technology, George Otte and the afternoon panel session entitled Game-Based Learning in Education was streamed live on the Showcase website: http://cuny.is/bronxedtech.
Led by Bronx Community College's Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology, a team of administrators and faculty from each campus worked together to convene educators from across CUNY and beyond to demonstrate and discuss their commitment to exemplary teaching and learning in technologically rich environments. This year's format consisted of moderated short presentations on similar themes with adequate time for stimulating discussion. The interactive "birds of a feather" sessions encouraged group discussion and brainstorming on a variety of technology-related topics. An ePortfolio "eposter session" during lunch highlighted exemplary student work.
The audience, comprised of representatives from 17 colleges within CUNY, enjoyed the insights, experiences and perspectives of 56 (including 6 students) speakers representing a broad cross-section of disciplines.
This year's distinguished plenary speakers are CUNY innovation leaders:
