SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY AUG 15, 2018

As part of back-to-school training for faculty and staff, USF Sarasota-Manatee is hosting two singular events this coming Thursday, Aug. 16. A “Tech Petting Zoo” will demonstrate how Virtual Reality (VR) and other high-tech gadgets are impacting education, and a Critical Thinking Workshop will teach faculty how to incorporate critical thinking—one of the most-desired skills sets sought by employers—into their courses. Using special technology at the Tech Petting Zoo, students can “hold” a human heart in their hands! Representatives from Microsoft, Crestron Air Media and Newline Interactive will demonstrate new hardware, instructional software and other technologies, including a VR gaming station.
