Learning Tech | Tech Week 2021

The past year has presented unprecedented challenges for higher education, but it’s also demonstrated the value of learning technologies and the opportunities they offer for our teaching, learning, and research. As we prepare to return to the classroom this fall, the Learning Tech team and partners across Grounds are joining together to present a series of interactive virtual sessions on more than a dozen tools and strategies, from transforming feedback with Gradescope to fostering textual conversations with Hypothesis to increasing engagement with Poll Everywhere.

Most of these sessions will feature UVA instructors and staff members sharing details and demonstrations of how they use the tools in their courses and projects.

Select the button below to register for sessions, and continue scrolling to browse the complete schedule. You can register for as many sessions as you like. Registrants will also receive links to the meeting recordings after their conclusion, so we encourage you to register for any sessions that interest you, even if you aren’t able to attend them live.
