Instructional Technology Workshops & Seminars

Attention Faculty Members

Are you using social media, such as blogs and wikis, Blackboard, or a faculty Web site to enrich your curriculum? Have you provided your students the opportunity to create their best work in classes you teach and showcase this work in an ePortfolio? Would you like to teach partially online courses where you seamlessly blend face-to-face class meetings with online sessions? Then you'll want to take an iTEC workshop or seminar.
