Information for

2017 Educational Technologies Week

CTE’s 3rd annual Educational Technologies Week runs from Monday, February 27 – Friday, March 3. Register for up to 15 workshops and join us for a keynote presentation from Don Presant, President of Learning Agents, titled “Recognizing Knowledge and Skills in a Digital Age.” Please see the schedule below and click on workshop titles to find workshop descriptions, locations, and registration information.


  • The start times for Monday and Friday differ from those of Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
  • Friday's workshops are 60 minutes in length rather than 90.
  • Two of the workshops—Course Redesign for Blended Learning and Enhancing Learning Through Gamification—have a "Part 2" that takes place the following week (to allow participants time to develop materials or activities that will be discussed in Part 2 of the workshop).

If you have any questions, please contact Mark Morton
