TruTech Challenge Submission Deadline is Feb. 8

This Feb. 8 is the deadline for project submissions for the fourth annual TruTech Challenge, a juried competition of projects that use technology to achieve some learning outcome. Students, faculty, staff, and student organizations are invited to submit projects to the Challenge. Submitters will be asked to present their projects at Truman’s Technology Fair during the University Conference, Feb. 20. Prizes will be awarded to the top projects. Prizes in previous years have included handheld computer PDAs and computer printers.

To be a part of the TruTech Challenge, you should include a 250-1,000 word description of the project. The description should include a statement of the project’s purpose (what learning outcome it attempts to achieve), the ways in which the project uses technology, the ways in which the achievement of the project’s purpose is facilitated by the use of technology, the progress that has been made in executing the project and what assistance, if any, was received from others in executing the project. Also, submitters should include any supporting materials for the project that they would like the TruTech Challenge jury to consider. These materials might include (but are certainly not limited to) links to Web sites, printed or electronic documents, CD-ROMs, videotapes/DVDs, audio recordings, or artwork.

Project submissions should be made by Feb. 8 to Chad Mohler, either via e-mail to or campus mail Chad Mohler, Department of Philosophy & Religion, McClain Hall 214. By submitting a project, you agree to allow your submission to be posted on TLTR’s Web site, and to present your project at the Technology Fair on Feb. 20.

The TLTR committee will judge each of the submitted projects on the degree to which its use of technology enhances the project’s attempt at achieving its learning outcome. Prize winners will be announced at the Technology Fair on Feb. 20.
