Technology has forever changed the landscape of higher education and continues to do so—often at a rapid pace. At the University of Nebraska, we strive to embrace technology to enhance both teaching and learning, to provide key support systems and meet institutional goals. The Innovation in Pedagogy and Technology Symposium is designed for any NU administrator, faculty or staff member who is involved in the use of technology in education at all levels. Past events have drawn over 500 NU faculty, staff and IT professionals from across the four campuses for a day of discovery and networking.

The 2018 event was held in downtown Lincoln. The schedule included: • Presentations by University of Nebraska faculty, staff and administrators • Concurrent sessions focused on pedagogy/instructional design, support and administrative strategies and emerging technologies • Panel discussions • Roundtable discussions and networking time • Sponsor exhibits • Continental breakfast and lunch
