Need more information? What is this Showcase you ask?

  • Picture a time where faculty can drop in and talk with their peers who have implemented technology into their teaching. The room will be set up with tables around the perimeter with laptops for demo purposes.
  • This event is intended to provide faculty an opportunity to explore real world examples of how GRCC faculty have integrated technology into their teaching. 
  • The showcase is organized into "faculty exhibits" around the perimeter of the room, whereby faculty can browse and talk with their peers about the impact of technology in teaching and learning.
  • The "faculty exhibits" will be set up in a poster session type format. Each presenter will have a laptop, and a sign that includes the name, title, and statement of how technology is being used in teaching and learning.
