Brownbag Lunch and Learn Series AY 17/18

Technology is always changing! Whether you're getting started in your academic career, are looking to fine tune a class, or you just love trying out new technologies and techniques, there is something here for you. We've put together twelve workshops around three themes:

  • The Fundamentals
  • Promoting Student Engagement
  • Technology & Multimedia
      • In addition to the workshops  in this theme,  you can include a up to two workshops (total) from the other themes.

Faculty can attend any of these stand-alone workshops, or choose a theme and attend five or more workshops within that theme to earn a certificate.

The workshops are from noon to 1pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays spaced throughout the academic year. If you can't attend the on-campus workshop,  we'll make a Zoom link available to attend remotely.
