What is the PrezTech Challenge?

PrezTech Challenge

 

The Committee on Libraries and Educational Technology (COLET) is pleased to announce PrezTech Challenge.

PrezTech Challenge encourages W&J faculty to enhance student learning by using library and educational technology in innovative ways. Are you tired of assigning papers and blue book exams and looking for a new project that will engage your students? Perhaps you already have a class project but you think it could be more effective and engaging. PrezTech Challenge is an opportunity for you to develop or enhance a project that will engage your students while achieving your courses’ learning outcomes.

Participants in the PrezTech Challenge will be given the opportunity to meaningfully incorporate technology or information literacy into a course by providing both the incentives and support to:

  • incorporate some form of educational technology into your course such as podcasting, digital stories, GIS mapping, digital exhibits, etc.
  • integrate information literacy skills such as finding and evaluating information, examining how information is disseminated in a field or exploring economic, social, legal, and ethical issues surrounding information into your classes.
