Problem-based pedagogy, including design thinking, has captured the imagination of teachers, students, and administrators. While it presents exciting opportunities for collaboration and innovation, it can also strain limited campus resources. This panel brings together diverse voices, from IT director to faculty, to explore what happens when new technology and trending pedagogy meet.

Outcomes: Examine emerging classroom pedagogies and consider their potential for promoting faculty and student engagement * Assess the potential utility and limitations of emerging collaborative technologies * Critique both institutional norms (which may no longer be appropriate, given shifting teaching and learning priorities) and common institutional practices and policies
