NJEDge.Net Annual Faculty Showcase

15th Annual Showcase

Every spring NJEDge sponsors a day-long event at one of its member institutions to showcase faculty best practices. Targeted to educators from K-12, higher education, institutional research, and healthcare-related teaching, this is an opportunity for them to show their work to NJ colleagues.

The showcase features dynamic presentations and posters on technology-mediated instruction. This is an excellent arena for NJEDge members, faculty, researchers and professional staff to present on the newest applications and latest ideas about learning activities for on-ground and online courses.

Each presentation is 25 minutes in length; ideal for showing works-in-progress, student/faculty projects, or leading-edge research. Poster presentation is an effective because it allows participants to discuss informally their work with colleagues. At the faculty showcase there is designated slot for poster sessions. There is a poster contest where the winner gets an all paid pass to the annual conference.
