Truman Tech Break – The 2015 PASSHE Virtual ConferenceFebruary 19, 2015
In honor of the tradition of University Conference Day and its plethora of development options, our Truman Techbreak today is a full access pass to the 2015 PASSHE Virtual Conference: Transforming the Teaching & Learning Environment.
By following the link below, you will find a huge listing of the recorded sessions from this week’s conference AND the live sessions going on today and tomorrow.

To view the archives (recorded sessions) or to join a live session, you will be prompted to install the Blackboard Collaborate plug-in, this is quick download and install. We encourage you to also run the audio set-up wizard for the best results. For more detailed help/tips see the “Collaborate Instructions” on the left-hand menu on the Session List page.
We have access to the PASSHE Virtual Conference sessions not just this week, but through the end of March. That way, you can pick and choose the sessions you’d like to review, when you’d like to!
In next week’s Truman Techbreak, Instructional Designer, Susan Thomas will be back to discuss the just-in-time-teaching tool – Poll Everywhere – for those of you interested in getting feedback from your students or staff in the spur of the moment WITHOUT the use of dedicated clicker devices.
