WAUKESHA, WIS.— More than 45 higher education professionals will gather Friday, Aug. 9, 2013, for an open meeting on how to embrace new technology that will stimulate learning and innovative scholarship. The Humanities and Technology Camp (THATCamp) Wisconsin will be based on the theme “Big Ideas, Small Campuses.” Registration is closed.
Session proposals and conversations were proposed by the attendees, and will be voted on the morning of the “unconference.” The camp will offer hands-on experimentation with digital tools, opportunities to explore new approaches to teaching and informal networking. Participants will share tools, projects, assignments and other components that have been helpful in their research and the classroom.
THAT Camp will be held 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 9, at the Carroll University Center for Graduate Studies, 2140 Davidson Rd., Waukesha. It is coordinated by four Carroll University faculty: Timothy Galow, coordinator of the undergraduate writing program, John Garrison, assistant professor of English, Philip Krejcarek, chair of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, and Terri Johnson, director of the Center for Educational Technology and Innovation. It is supported by CETI and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
