Grounding Technology Use in Principles of Good Teaching

Please join us...

You are invited to spend the day with Kristin Ziemke and Don Goble. This day promises to be time well spent as we investigate how to ground our technology use in principles of good teaching. The day will begin in the Carver Center at ISMS. Please see the agenda below for detailed information.
