For the past 11 years, the Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology and the UI Libraries have teamed up to host the annual 4CAST (Campus Academic Strategies and Technology) faculty conference.


Each year, 4CAST focusses on a trending topic in higher education, with a goal to leverage learning technologies and connect UI instructors to enhance student success.


4CAST’18 will focus on Design Thinking – a process that allows people to routinely innovate and solve problems through empathizing, defining, ideating, prototyping, and testing.


In higher education, Design Thinking encourages faculty to better understand their students and assess different pedagogies to enhance the learning experience.


4CAST’18 will provide an opportunity for UI faculty to envision themselves as learning architects, with the notion that teaching is itself a design challenge.


 Director of Curriculum & Experiential Learning at the University of Maryland, Erica Estrada-Liou will provide a keynote address and workshop at 4CAST ’18. 


 Save the date for 4CAST’18: Thursday, January 11, 2018, 8:30 am – 3:00 pm
