Learning Technology Forum

The Learning Technology Forum is a space to share different ways we use learning technology as a part of our teaching and learning in the University of Calgary community and to connect with other members of the community. Learning technology is a broad category, but the focus of the forum is on the tools instructors use to engage learners and evaluate learning. 


Format

The Learning Technology Forum is a 45-minute session for discussing learning technology; what works, what doesn’t work, what we’ve learned, and what we want to know.

In the forum, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Share examples of their uses of learning technology
  • Discuss broader learning technology applications
  • Apply learning technologies to different contexts and disciplines 

Date: First Monday of every month (excluding January, July, and September)

Time: 12 - 12:45 p.m.

Invitation to join

The Learning Technology Forum is open to everyone in the University of Calgary community who teaches (online or in-person), and works with or has an interest in learning technologies.

If you are interested, please contact Tyson Kendon to be added to the Learning Technology Forum mailing list.
