About this Event

Students need to learn to leverage technology to create new knowledge, engage in design thinking, develop digital stories to communicate to diverse populations, and not only solve problems but identify potential problems to be solved.

This workshop will explore ways that instructors can enable digital fluency skills among students through assignments and activities that promote creative thinking, innovative problem solving, teamwork and the exploration of new media and technologies.

The DIT Lunch and Learn series will feature Dr. Spencer Benson, Graduate School.

Lunch will be provided by Adobe, Inc. and registration is required.

Please indicate if you would like to request any disability-related accommodations.
