Teaching with Technology Symposium [pdf flyer]


The role of technology is evolving, impacting students and teachers inside and outside the classroom. Not only has the rapid evolution of technology expanded our approach to teaching business communication, it has also radically influenced the teaching and learning experiences.
Evolving students. Evolving teachers. Evolving technologies. Evolving communication. What does this changing landscape mean for the teaching of business communication? How do we as faculty integrate technologies into our courses for improved learning? This 2 ½ hour ABC Teaching with Technology SIG Symposium will assist you in gaining knowledge and ideas for teaching with technology, and present a series of panels to engage participants in discussions on:

  • Evolving role of technology in teaching business communication today
  • Best practices and favorite assignments among our members that engage our students and inspire us
