"I'm so glad to have a regular open-to-everyone place to see and hear what's happening with educational technology on campus."
"The WebEd events not only increased my awareness of applications and initiatives at the University of Washington, they kept me informed of student issues as they relate to technology adoption, efficacy, and use."

WebEd Mission
WebEd is a UW discussion group for people interested in educational technology. WebEd events offer participants opportunities for:

  • Pedagogical Reflection and Improvement: Learn from each other and field experts on teaching and learning with a variety of educational technologies.

  • Informal Peer Review: Participate in informal peer review of current projects by interested colleagues from multiple disciplines.

  • Connecting with Colleagues: Network with like-minded people and connect with resources they might not otherwise be able to find.

  • Staying State of the Art: See how others integrate innovative technologies into their courses, and hear about the latest research on educational technology.

WebEd is supported by PETTT and Educational Partnerships & Learning Technologies at the University of Washington.


Who We Are
WebEd grew from the work of two graduate students in the UW College of Education, Mark Scott and Jon Sharpe. They convened the first WebEd meeting in the summer of 1997. Since then WebEd has gone through a metamorphosis and is now under the auspices of the UW Program for Educational Transformation Through Technology.

WebEd is based at the University of Washington, in Seattle.
