The Bronx CUNY Educational Technology (EdTech) Showcase
The Bronx CUNY EdTech Showcase, held annually in May, promotes and highlights the innovative uses of technology that have the potential to reach new levels of student engagement leading to improved performance.
The three Bronx City University of New York (CUNY) colleges (Lehman, Bronx CC, and Hostos CC) see this event as a great opportunity for networking, collaborating, sharing technical information, and building upon effective practices within our CUNY Community.
Future Bronx CUNY EdTech Showcases will be held annually in May, to offer faculty an opportunity to share their innovative uses of technology to reach new levels of student engagement and improved performance. The showcase will continue the tradition of bringing notable guest speakers to the delight of our audience of faculty, staff, students and administrators.
The Office of Educational Technology and The Center for Teaching and Learning at Hostos Community College was proud and excited to host the third edition of this initiative, a unique event that brings together colleagues from the three Bronx CUNY colleges to illustrate their commitment to exemplary teaching and learning in the online, hybrid, and face-to-face environments campuses and the Bronx IT community. In 2014 the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology at Bronx Community College hosted the showcase for over 200 participants. The first edition of the Bronx EdTech Showcase was hosted by The Office of Online Education at Lehman College, where audience comprised of representatives from 18 colleges within our CUNY community were exposed to the insights, experiences and perspectives of 57 presenters throughout the day.
In December 2014, the Bronx EdTech showcase was honored at the 13th Annual CUNY IT Conference with the CUNY Excellence in Collaboration Award.
