Our first DASH Inspiration event of 2014 will feature faculty and instructors who use digital tools and methodologies to enhance and transform their pedagogy. They will talk about tools used in classrooms, tools created in classrooms, the challenges in doing so, and what new opportunities these tools and methodologies offered students. We hope that audience members will learn new things to incorporate into their own classes, especially in the Spring 2014 semester, and share their own experiences of working with these types of tools and methods in their courses.
