COLTT Conference: Wednesday August 11th and Thursday August 12th, 2010

Yeehaw -- here comes COLTT!  Early registration rates are available through July 15th for the Colorado Teaching and Learning with Technology Conference. COLTT will be held Wednesday August 11th and Thursday August 12th, 2010 on the CU-Boulder Campus.  While this is conceived as a regional event, the quality of the programming attracts people from beyond Colorado's borders.  This year's sessions promise to continue the tradition of excellence.  The following is just a sample of the offerings we can look forward to -- see the COLTT Web site for a complete list of sessions.
  • Twitter in Education: What, How, and Why
  • Google Scholar: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
  • Web 2.0 in Practice Across Disciplines
  • Teaching the forgotten aspects of media literacy
  • Death to boring PowerPoints, using Web 2.0 tools
  • Journey to Webinar City
  • Prezi: Finding the forest AND the trees
  • Facilitating Learning with Technology in Diverse Classrooms
  • To Ban or Not to Ban, Digital Distractions in the Higher Education Classroom
  • Digital Pedagogies and the Student 2.0
  • Participatory Media and Civic Engagement
  • Enhancing Class Discussions with FREE Web Tools
In addition to many other great sessions, there will be a keynote address from Adrian Sannier and a featured talk by J. John Cohen. And don't miss the Café Pédagogique, which "provides a forum for public discussion of interesting and controversial issues related to teaching and learning with technology. Several audience members speak for a few minutes on their single most provocative idea, radical move, fondest wish, or related thought-provoking topic, which invariably generates lively small-group and large-group discussions." This year's Café Pédagogique will be held at Carelli's restaurant in Boulder.
