We’ve made it through another academic year. Whether you’re slowing down for a quiet summer or gearing up for summer courses, June is the perfect time to reflect on learnings from the year and imagine what the future holds for teaching and learning. We’ll be doing just that at Tech Ed 2023, an annual summit for college instructors hosted by Macmillan Learning in Austin, Texas.

Each year, Tech Ed brings together educators from across the United States who teach at institutions large and small, urban and rural, and with diverse student populations. Instructors share their best practices for using technology to enhance teaching and learning. And, they engage in conversations with the Macmillan Learning team about the future of education. 

Tech Ed 2023 is right around the corner and we can’t wait to meet you there. Here are our top five things that we’re looking forward to this year. 

1. Hearing from Innovative Educators

Educators and administrators using technology like Achieve and iClicker will share their stories and best practices. They’ll talk about engaging students in active learning, improving student outcomes, personalizing the learning experience and so much more. We’ll get to learn firsthand about the strategies and pedagogical approaches that are transforming classrooms across the country and how edtech makes it possible. 

2. Joining the AI in Education Conversation

Artificial intelligence is arguably revolutionizing the way we live, work, interact, and learn. Tech Ed 2023 will feature multiple sessions on AI in education. These sessions will allow instructors to explore AI’s potential to reshape how students learn, how they’re assessed, and how they collaborate. 

3. Shaping the Future of Educational Technology

One of the highlights of this year’s event is the unique opportunity to shape the future of educational technology during sessions with Macmillan Learning’s product, research, and marketing teams. Macmillan Learning has a rich history of co-creating technologies with instructors and students. At Tech Ed 2023 attending instructors can use their voices to inform the development of innovative teaching and learning platforms.

4. Eating Tacos 

Okay, it’s not just about the tacos. Austin, Texas has phenomenal food that anyone can enjoy. We’re excited to sit down for a meal with educators for informal conversations about what they’ve been up to, the things on their minds, and how they plan to spend the summer. 

5. Connecting with Educators

Tech Ed 2023 isn’t just about the tech; it’s about the people we meet and the relationships we build. In the past few years, so much has been online. Connecting with others who are passionate about creating meaningful learning experiences for students is hands down our favorite part of the event.

Tech Ed 2023 is an invite-only, two-day event held in the Macmillan Learning Austin, Texas office. A few spots are still available for the event on June 8th & 9th.
