The University at Buffalo is planning a series of events that many of people from the SUNY instructional community would find useful. I encourage anyone who might be interested to attend. A streamed option will also be made available.


You are invited to join us at the University at Buffalo on February 17-18, 2015 for a two-day program on instructional innovation, part of UB’s Digital Challenges Series

Teaching and Learning in the Classroom of the Future will take place February 17 from 9:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. in 145 Student Union. Experts will discuss how the classroom experience is likely to change over the next decade.

  • The day starts with addressing the needs of “born digital” students as presented by Dr. Kathleen Gradel (SUNY Fredonia). The discussion continues with local educators Jen Kinyon (Nardin Academy), Karen Kondrick (Ripley CSD), and Chris Edwards (Ellicottville CSD) sharing the latest technologies employed in today’s classrooms. 
  • In the afternoon, UB Professor Sam Abramovich will offer a provocative look at the future classroom and discuss the ways in which teaching and learning could evolve over the next 10 years. Reflections from a panel of UB educators, Professor James Milles (Law), Dr. John Tomaszewski (Pathology and Anatomical Science), and PhD candidate Jeremiah Grabowski (GSE) will follow.

UB Instructional Technology Fair 2015 will take place February 18 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. in the Student Union Atrium.

  • Vendors, including Sony, Verizon, Dell and Capstream Technologies, will exhibit the latest products and services in the educational technology marketplace.
  • Maker Space will feature practical experimentation with 3D printing and other technologies, along with a “Tech Salon” staffed by experts from the Tools of Engagement Project (SUNY) and UB Accessibility Resources who will offer one-on-one assistance and advice on using universal design, social media, mobile apps, presentation tools and more.

View the full schedule and register at Both events are free and open to the public.
