The Magna Teaching with Technology conference explores the many ways technology can help facilitate teaching and learning. The conference is for teachers who use technology to promote learning and increase student success in any classroom or instructional setting. The overarching aim of this gathering is to share, demonstrate, and explore how the introduction of technology alters the way the following areas of interest are undertaken in teaching and learning today.

Experience-Based Proposals reflect a technology-as-tool approach to pedagogy with immediate take-away applications for the conference attendee.

  • Active Learning Pedagogies
  • Course Design
  • Emergent Technologies
  • Faculty Development
  • Student Assessment

Evidence-Based Proposals reflect data-driven approaches to the interactions of technology with learning, giving the conference attendee guidance to make future pedagogic decisions or engage in similar research.

  • Active Learning Pedagogies
  • Course Design
  • Emergent Technologies
  • Faculty Development
  • Student Assessment

Submissions should relate to one of the above areas; however compelling and relevant proposals that fall outside of these designated topics are also welcome.
