Evergreen faculty engage in developing new and innovative curricula, and many of them have done this using one or many innovative technologies. What we hope to explore in this discussion are a few ways in which faculty have delivered content to their students using strange, interesting and creative technologies that enhanced the learning experience for their students. Examples will be shown and hopefully those in attendance will be able to contribute their experiences (both good and bad) delivering content to their students in unconventional ways.
