Summer 2014 Digital Explorations

Learn something new this summer bannerJoin us in person or via webcast to participate in live, hands-on 90-minutes workshops on an array of great tools and strategies to revamp, revise, and revitalize your courses! The Summer 2014 Digital Explorations series will give you the leg up you need to better engage students, and provide them with more opportunities to express what they have learned. We will focus not just on the technology, but also on how to thoughtfully use it in your courses, regardless of whether you are teaching online, hybrid, or face-to-face.

Participants that attend at least three out of our five summer sessions will receive a Certificate of Achievement!

All workshops take place from 3:30pm to 5:00pm in TECH 298, or you may also join in through Adobe Connect.
