Event Overview
Folks at the intersection of technology, teaching, and learning have many aspirations but rarely the budget to go with it.  Therefore, to stay relevant, accessible, and engaged in a digital learning, we often find different shortcuts, hacks, and strategies to address the problems we face.  Inevitably, this takes different shapes at different institutions; however, we don’t often have an opportunity to share back and learn from one another on how we can use technology in the ways that we need, even if that’s not necessarily how it is intended to be used.  

This workshop mixes the sharing of tools and strategies by the presenters with the opportunity to work in teams and find ways of improving outcomes for different challenges that the attendees face.  Participants will walk away with a larger network of edu-hackers, specific technological hacks, and some strategic ideas about future problems they encounter.

Session Outcomes:
 - Examine challenges for digital learning through the lens of hacking and design thinking.
 - Develop a strategy for finding alternative methods of using technology to meet multiple needs.
 - Articulate how their campus technologies might be more effectively used for unintended uses.
