The 2003 UNC Teaching and Learning with Technology Conference will be held at the Joseph S. Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, NC on March 2729, 2003.

This annual event provides professional development for faculty, staff, and administrators throughout the UNC system who are interested in the effective use of technology for teaching and learning. Many sessions feature examples of technology-supported instruction and address issues such as implementation, learning outcomes, and student perspectives. Other sessions address technological, pedagogical, and administrative support issues associated with TLT.

This years conference is co-sponsored by the UNC TLT Collaborative and the UNC Faculty Assembly.


Using Technology in Teaching and Learning
This track will explore ways in which faculty can enhance the teaching and learning process through the use of technology by sharing experiences and expertise in real-world applications, by discussing common problems, and by exploring innovative avenues for improving the learning environments with technology.

Developing Creative Solutions Through Collaboration
Proposals are encouraged to highlight collaborative work among individuals, groups, and/or institutions that facilitates the development of creative solutions for TLT issues.

Professional Development and Recognition
This track showcases professional development initiatives in instructional technology for faculty, librarians, and instructional technology professionals. Rewards and recognitions for efforts in incorporating technology in instruction will also be featured.

TLT Policy Considerations
Presentations, panel discussions, and focus groups in this track will address important TLT policy issues of current interest, such as administrative support for incorporating TLT into coursework, intellectual property rights, and managing technology costs.

Value Added: Specialty Areas and Unique Topics
This track will offer a venue for presentations or discussions of particularly interesting, successful, or novel methods or issues in TLT that are not addressed by one or more of the other conference tracks.
