What is TOEP?

The SUNY Tools of Engagement Project (TOEP) is an on-demand discovery learning professional development model. The goal of TOEP is to encourage faculty and staff across SUNY to explore and reflect upon the use of emerging technology tools to expand tech-infused pedagogy. This program gives participants an opportunity to experience tools first-hand, reflect on their own learning, and interact with peers and colleagues in an online learning community.
