The Teaching and Learning with Technology series focuses on innovative ideas, emerging technologies, and effective practices related to the integration of technology into the teaching and learning environment. In its seventh season, the TLT Series typically sponsors 6-7 talks per year with speakers, selected by the Learning Technology Community and the TLT advisory committee, from UBC and beyond. The series is coordinated by the Office of Learning Technology.

Seminars in this series are open to everyone in the UBC community; they are offered at certain times during the year and you may register on the TAG website during those times.
Douglas Duncan is the author of “Clickers in the Classroom,” a guide to the powerful new technology that enables teachers to know what all their students are thinking, not just those who raise their hands. He has served as national education coordinator for the American Astronomical Society and has led efforts for better teaching and public communication for astronomers throughout the United States. From 1997 to 2002 he did science commentary on the Chicago public radio station WBEZ. He has authored over 50 refereed publications and his work has been funded by NSF, NASA, the Smithsonian, and the National Geographic Society. Duncan is now part of the University of Colorado group, founded by Nobel Prize winner Carl Wieman, which researches better ways of teaching science. All are invited to come and share their thoughts and experiences. Attendance is free.
