In 2017 the Center of Innovation in Teaching & Learning (CITL) will open the Illinois Innovation TechHub, a single space that not only houses a variety of innovative technologies for visitors to learn about and explore hands-on, but also a hub for the campus community to share their ideas, expertise, and to encourage collaboration across disciplines.
To provide an immersive and engaging environment for visitors to explore, learn, and share how innovative technologies can enhance teaching and learning. To elevate and accelerate the conversation about emerging technologies at the University of Illinois and how they can transform formal and informal education.
- Explore the latest emerging technologies (and some tried-and-true ones as well)
- Learn how you might leverage these new technologies on campus
- Share your experience and ideas with others
By researching and monitoring the latest technology trends in education, the TechHub focuses on identifying emerging and innovative technologies that have potential application across campus.
Throughout the year the TechHub will highlight a wide variety of technologies with applications in education. In addition, a variety of other special events and guest speaker series will provide opportunities for attendees to learn more about new tools with the potential to transform education. These events may include TED talks, guest seminars, RSO activities, technology exploration sessions, presentation peer review sessions, and Pecha Kucha style engagements to increase transdisciplinary awareness and get people talking.
