The 15th Colorado Learning and Teaching with Technology Conference (COLTT) is

Attendees will find sessions on gamifying the classroom, info graphics, flipped classrooms,
learning analytics, and Google apps, among other topics. The conference will be held in the Wolf Law Building on the University of Colorado Boulder campus, Wednesday, August 1st,
