Teaching with Technology Conference
Since 2007, Information Technology Services (ITS) and the Center for Scholarly Technology (CST) have hosted the Teaching with Technology Conference, an annual event that brings USC faculty and staff together to share ideas, best practices, and potential collaborations on projects and initiatives.
The 2013 conference “Learning in Motion” featured two distinguished keynote presentations: “Learn Yourself” by Dr. Leslie Saxon, chief of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Keck School of Medicine, and executive director, USC Center for Body Computing; and “Socially Assistive Robots—Teaching Us, Teaching Them” by Maja Mataric, professor of Computer Science and vice dean for Research, Viterbi School of Engineering.
Vice Provost Beth Meyerowitz presented the annual Provost Prize for Teaching with Technology at the conference, an annual tradition since the conference’s inception. The Provost’s Prize honors faculty by recognizing outstanding achievements in teaching through the incorporation of technology into courses and curricula. Awarded to up to two USC faculty members each year, the honor includes a $5,000 prize. Links to articles and information about each year’s recipients appear below:
