Many of the current techniques for promoting engaged student learning rely on technology, and many institutions of higher learning are fortunate enough to have technologically advanced campus networks and highly skilled and motivated faculty members who embrace cutting-edge strategies. What happens, though, if the digital superhighway is full of potholes due to lack of funding? Or, what happens when the superhighway suddenly collapses altogether and technology fails completely? In this presentation, participants will review their own teaching styles; view multidiscipline demonstrations of how technology can be used to facilitate student engagement in any environment; and leave with a multitude of resources for designing active learning strategies suitable to their own academic disciplines. This presentation will be beneficial for anyone wishing to incorporate active learning strategies using current technology with limited resources.
