President Coleman to speak about technology and creativity
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa President Mary Sue Coleman will
not only talk about the creative use of technology, she'll also demonstrate
it in her annual speech during the University Convocation Tuesday, Sept.
Coleman's talk, "Technology, Creativity, and New Modes of Learning,"
will demonstrate some of the creative uses of technology to promote learning
by using a computer montage developed by Second Look, the UI's multimedia
studio and computer aided instruction lab. The speech and illustrations
will later be put on the President's web page.
Awards for faculty and staff excellence in teaching, research and service
will highlight the annual convocation. The 7:30 p.m. event will be in
the Main Lounge of the Iowa Memorial Union and will be followed by a reception
on the lounge's sunporch.
