VA State Secretary of Technology to Speak at CLT Summer Institute on May 20

Aneesh P. Chopra, state secretary of technology, will deliver the keynote address for the Old Dominion University Center for Learning Technologies' 10th Summer Institute. His talk will begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 20, in the Hampton/Newport News Room of Webb Center.

The summer institute, which runs from Monday, May 19, through Wednesday, May 21, opens with a technology fair that will include demonstrations of various available technologies. From Tuesday morning through Wednesday afternoon, guests are invited to participate in seminars with ODU faculty members who have used those and other technologies to facilitate their students' learning and success.

The institute also features a series of panel discussions on the inclusion of portable online delivery (POD), which uses the Internet and portable devices (such as hand-held audio or video players) to increase class interaction and to ensure better student retention. This technology is heavily used by multitasking students, and has been employed successfully by several ODU professors to broaden the delivery of their course materials.

Luncheons will be provided for those who attend. For more information write clt@odu.edu; to register, visit http://clt.odu.edu/facdev.
