Faculty Technology Curriculum

The Faculty Technology Curriculum is a series of workshops and roundtable discussions designed to introduce you to various multimedia applications and pedagogical methods using technology.

All workshops will be held in the CTLT (Cheng Library, room 120k) unless otherwise advised at the time you sign up. If you have any material, which can be worked on during the workshop, feel free to bring them. For example, if you are attending the dotCMS for Web Editors workshop and have a web page started, it may be a good idea to bring it along.
