  • The Convention Center has two levels. Meals and main sessions will be held in the lower level and the breakout sessions will be held in the main or 1st floor.
  • Restrooms are in the 1st Floor across from Cascadia B.
  • The Thursday night, Networking & Hors D’oeuvres, will be held right after the last Thursday breakout session in the main entrance space by the fireplace on the 1st floor.

Feedback form is now closed.
The Untethered Lecture Capture project is an award-winning, unique multimedia approach to driving student engagement and enhancing student options to personalize study plans. Drawing on research-based findings about the strength of multimodal forms of content presentation, this proven teaching method has resulted in higher test scores, more focused attention, and greater retention for students while allowing faculty more convenience and range in content delivery. Bring your own device to this interactive presentation for a taste of what it’s like to engage on the fly with content as it’s being presented and recorded in real time. We will share first person scenarios from our faculty members on how they use the ULC technique in their own classes including chemistry, foreign language, math, engineering, and theology and the impact it’s had on their teaching and on student learning.

From this workshop you will take away:
  • An understanding of why a multimodal approach to content delivery produces superior results for learners
  • Immediate applications of this teaching technique to your own online or hybrid class
  • A better way to offer virtual office hours, consultations, and group discussions or meetings
  • Proven ideas for how to engage your students with online content
