Organizers of the first-ever 4CAST conference are labeling the event a huge success.
A joint effort by the Center for Teaching, University of Iowa Libraries, and ITS, the daylong conference on Jan. 17 was attended by 88 faculty and staff from all over campus.
The theme of this year’s conference was “Social Networking – Opportunities and Impact on Teaching and Learning.” Participants identified ways in which social networking tools are impacting teaching, ways in which instructors can leverage these emerging technologies to engage students in and out of the classroom, and areas that will require additional support at The University of Iowa as the use of these technologies increases.
Conference organizers plan to make 4CAST an annual event.
