Welcome This presentation will introduce you to a variety of Internet Technology tools that facilitate collaboration and sharing between students and teachers.
Rationale The information provided in this Workshop will improve teaching techniques, which will positively impact the learning experience of all students. The workshops will enhance technology literacy and improve technology skills. Faculty, staff, and administration will have the opportunity to exchange ideas, and learn about different teaching methods and techniques. These experiences will be incorporated into classroom teaching and department responsibilities. As instructors of technology-related subjects, it is necessary to stay current with new processes, ideas, and methods.
