Learning Technology, in the Office of the CIO, invites you to attend Innovate, our annual conference featuring the best uses of technology in teaching and learning at Universities and Colleges across the Midwest. Held on Tuesday, March 26 and Wednesday, March 27, the event will be hosted at the Leed Certified Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center

Innovate is an opportunity to learn about the most cutting-edge approaches to technology enhanced learning and research across campus and the state. One of the goals of Innovate is to create connections among faculty and staff who are interested in exploring the relationship between technology and teaching. This interactive, highly engaging program is built upon three years of tremendously successful events. 98% of participants in 2012 indicated that they would like to attend a similar event in the future and 100% agreed that the event was well organized.

Our 2013 program includes a new, half-day, hands-on program on Wednesday, March 27th, giving participants the ability to try the technologies they learn about on Tuesday, March 26.  This year’s theme, engage, highlights technology's ability to connect with students, bring scholarship to global audiences, and build bridges across our communities. 

We welcome a wide range of presenters from novice to advanced users, from graduate student instructors to tenured faculty. Presentation formats include poster sessions, breakout sessions, and a “steal my idea” showcase, with 5 minute presentations about exciting learning technology approaches that can be enacted in a wide range of environments.

Innovate is open to faculty and staff participants and presenters from across the region. We look forward to seeing you at Innovate 2013 on Tuesday, March 26 and Wednesday, March 27 at the 4-H Center
