September 19, 2013, 4:10 - 5:00 in AG 1030,  Surviving (and Thriving) in the Age of Technology-enhanced Teaching
Colloquium with Math Department by Dr. Maria Andersen, Director of Learning and Innovation, Area9 software company.

With every new iteration of technology, we create generations of students whose primary media "language" for learning and interacting with the world is different than the generation before it. In the last five years, technologies like online homework, personalized learning software, mobile devices, learning analytics, OER, and MOOCs have been chipping away at the corners of higher education and traditional teaching. Technology-enhanced learning is here to stay and it will alter formal education, like it or not. This is a guide to navigating and thriving in this new world and preparing yourself and students for what is to come.

Maria Andersen was a 2002 graduate of the master’s program in mathematics at the University of Wyoming.  Recently Maria moved into a position as the Director of Learning and Innovation at Area9, where she designs and develops personalized learning software (particularly focusing on STEM learning). Dr. Andersen has traveled extensively speaking and giving workshops about the future of learning and the technology of learning. You can find her online at or @busynessgirl on Twitter.
