President Coleman to speak about technology and creativity

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa President Mary Sue Coleman will not only talk about the creative use of technology, she'll also demonstrate it in her annual speech during the University Convocation Tuesday, Sept. 23.

Coleman's talk, "Technology, Creativity, and New Modes of Learning," will demonstrate some of the creative uses of technology to promote learning by using a computer montage developed by Second Look, the UI's multimedia studio and computer aided instruction lab. The speech and illustrations will later be put on the President's web page.

Awards for faculty and staff excellence in teaching, research and service will highlight the annual convocation. The 7:30 p.m. event will be in the Main Lounge of the Iowa Memorial Union and will be followed by a reception on the lounge's sunporch.
