ITEC Workshops Spring 2017

We will be continuing our series of workshops this semester investigating topics related to teaching and learning. We are especially excited this semester about having guest presenters for a number of the sessions. Please do make an effort to support our colleagues.

The spring rotation starts February 6 and runs through April 14. Sessions will be scheduled two days per week at different times.
  • Monday sessions will be held 4-5PM.
  • Thursday sessions will be held from 12-1:00PM.
Locations and links to RSVP are listed below.  We hope that this staggered schedule will maximize opportunities for people to attend.
