Innovate X Conference - May 16

Submitted by Valerie Childress, childress.39@osu.edu

Over the past ten years, the needs and interests of students have changed drastically. Today, they are looking for skills that will serve them well in our changing world, whether that be technological prowess or the courage and dedication necessary to bring about social justice. Are our teaching methods keeping up to meet the needs of these students? How do we keep them engaged in the classroom, and how do we push them to step outside that classroom to make a difference? We’ll explore these questions and more at InnovateX! 
    
Join us Thursday, May 16, at the Ohio Union for the 2019 Innovate Conference. We’re celebrating our tenth year with our theme InnovateX, and three threads will be woven in throughout the conference this year: 
    

  • Excite: How do you keep students engaged and active in their learning? What innovative technologies are available to enrich the learning experience? Get inspired by new ways to make learning exciting for your students. 
  • Explore: Learning doesn't have to be confined to the classroom. Discover ways to get your students out and into the community; how to incorporate problem-based learning, service learning and real-life applications alongside theory; and how global opportunities can take learning to new heights. 
  • Experience: This year at Innovate, we will be highlighting student voices as they share their experiences with inventive teaching methods and technology in the classroom. From traditional to online students, to those equipped with technology kits, find out what makes an excellent educational experience from the student perspective. 

    
Be sure to reserve your spot at this year’s Innovate Conference!
