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.
