The NJEDge.Net Faculty Best Practices Showcase is an excellent venue to showcase your work, work-in-progress or posters to the NJ Higher Ed and K-12 communities. Presentations are 30 minutes in length and covers innovative uses of technology and instructional methodologies.
This year we are highlighting teaching innovations in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math).
There will also be an IGNITE track. If you are interested in presenting your proposal as an IGNITE, please choose that option in the drop down menu.
The faculty showcase is a very accessible and economic way to show your best practices, one that does not rely solely on the conference allocation from your department. Presenters are only charged $30 while attendees pay $50. Affiliates who want to exhibit are charged $200 for the opportunity.
This will be the challenge facing our presenters. They will be given five minutes to speak about their ideas and professional passions, accompanied by 20 slides. Each slide is displayed for 15 seconds, and slides are automatically advanced. The presentations are meant to “ignite” the audience on a subject, i.e. to generate awareness and to stimulate thought and action on the subjects presented. Let’s cheer them on!
