Jon Landis, Apple’s U.S. higher education development executive, will discuss how technology is changing the educational landscape at the 21st Century Learner Symposium Tuesday, April 18, from 10 a.m. to noon in Thwing Center ballroom.

The presentation, part of a three-event symposium regarding learning in the future, is open to the entire campus community.

“Digital learning experiences, mobile devices and technology in general are changing the way we educate our students,” Provost and Executive Vice President William A. “Bud” Baeslack III said. “CWRU plans to demonstrate innovation in this dynamic landscape to support these emerging trends in education. I encourage the university community to attend this important event.”

Landis is part of Apple’s education team, working with school leaders to leverage technology to transform learning. Before Apple, he was a college professor, chemistry teacher, principal and curriculum director.

The first event in the series took place last month and focused on the university’s implementation of Canvas, a new learning management system. Next month’s meeting concentrates on innovative faculty projects aimed at increasing active learning in face-to-face and online environments. The faculty involved received ActiveLearning+ Fellowships from [U]Tech. That session takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, May 12, in Nord Hall, Room 356
