UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Teaching and Learning with Technology is excited to announce its first-ever virtual Symposium Lite on March 23, the week after the in-person TLT Symposium.

The half-day event will feature four 30-minute, prerecorded presentations followed by 15-minute, live facilitated discussions with the presenters. The presentations will be a mix of new material and repeated presentations from the TLT Symposium, allowing participants to continue exploring how technology can enhance teaching and learning.

“We’re excited to offer this virtual opportunity, with high-quality presentations and real-time conversations, for those who either cannot attend the in-person event or who simply want to extend their Symposium experience and engage in this whole new way,” said TLT Interim Director Crystal Ramsay.

Symposium Lite registration is now open.
