February technology workshops tailored for academic support staff
A new series of educational workshops is designed to help academic support staff learn to use classroom technologies to create accessible documents, set up web conferences, develop online surveys, and more.
The Academic Support Technology Series, offered by Purdue’s Innovative Learning Team, can help prepare departmental staff to work with faculty to support classroom instruction. These workshops are free and designed for academic administrative staff members, although faculty and graduate students are also welcome to attend. Participants do not need to be able to attend all sessions to register.
This series takes place every Tuesday in February from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in Stanley Coulter Hall, Room 246. Each week’s session will focus on a different tool or process. Space is limited. Register for a workshop by clicking on the links below:
