Instructional Technology Workshops

Along with the workshops listed here, Instructional Technology staff also provides regularly updated online tutorials for faculty and students which are available through the Help button in Canvas. Faculty and students are encouraged to enroll in the online training courses at their convenience to orient themselves to the system.  All events will be held in Bailey 114 unless specified otherwise.

We are excited introduce the Blended Teacher’s Academy (BTA). It was designed specifically as a professional development opportunity for instructors who blend face-to-face instruction with online activity outside of the traditional classroom.  We understand that teachers who create blended courses have different needs from those instructors who teach fully online.  Seating is limited so please view the complete schedule and register today.

“Creating Learning Environments that Launch Careers.”

 One prominent concern facing higher education institutions is whether a graduate’s degree will translate to employment. Linking learning to the workforce is more important than ever, and a sense of hands-on, entrepreneurism must pervade the culture of any college.

Join Dr. Stephen Dunnivant, Dean of the Advanced Technology Center at Gulf Coast State College, along with Frank Covelli, National Manager of Higher Education, Panasonic for a discussion on how to foster real-world experience in the classroom by designing an effective learning environment in an evolving world.

This webinar is sponsored by Panasonic and hosted by The Chronicle of Higher Education. All content presented during the event is provided by Panasonic.
