The pool's closed for the season . . . we'll see you next spring! Contact Instructional Services if you'd like more information now.
So much technology. So little time . . . We can help you keep from drowning by applying instructional best practices to your use of different technologies. In this two-day workshop we'll focus on creating effective visuals, multimedia design and frequent assessment. Additionally, Mark Burris from Blackboard, Inc. will share inside information about future Blackboard changes.
Dive in, splash around -- learn to swim in the technology pool!
Sponsored by ITS Instructional Services - Nancy, Tammy, Luke, Cj, Lorna, Sheree, and Steve look forward to being your "lifeguards"!
Final details will be e-mailed to all "swimmers" prior to the start of the workshop.
