Virtual Hackathon for UK Students

The Smart Campus Initiative is hosting a one week virtual Hackathon for UK students in January 2021. Student groups (made up of 1- 4 UK students) are invited to develop an app, a game, or an add-on feature to a current UK App. The goal of the project is to solve a challenge with themes defined by fall 2020 first-year students.

Making Learning Visible with iPads in Times of Remote Instruction

Join Trey Conatser and Jill Abney, from UK’s Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), for this virtual installment of the iPad Initiative Speaker Series. This session will examine opportunities for active learning with iPads using visual strategies (drawing, image sharing, and annotation) that encourage curiosity, collaboration, and engagement with Google Slides, OneNote, Keynote and Canvas. Trey and Jill will demonstrate ways of using these apps for both in-person and remote course delivery, as well as for courses with an array of devices.
