CFP for “Technology in Education Symposium” (TIES@Western)

Western UniversityJust sent out tonight was the Call for Proposals for the “Technology in Education Symposium” (or “TIES@Western”), which will be run on 8 March, 2013. The intent of the symposium is to showcase some of the most innovative uses of different kinds of instructional technology at Western University; it is a cross-faculty and interdisciplinary event that will afford teachers and graduate students at Western an opportunity to learn from each other, exchange ideas, and create new connections (and maybe even collaborations!)

Expect to see more information on TIES@Western soon. In the meantime, the CFP is reposted below:
