Instructional Technology and Classroom Integration
The changing nature of technology and the new research on distance learning and technology integration makes it challenging for faculty to stay current on issues of instructional technology. This course is designed to meet the needs of faculty on these issues by allowing the faculty member to tailor the instruction by selecting workshops specific to those needs.
This semester CETLA has scheduled a series of workshops on MS Expressions Web that may be used in conjunction with a project to meet the requirements of EDC 1202. The session descriptions and schedule may be found below.
Participants will receive one hour of credit for completing 16 hours of instruction from the various workshops presented. To enroll, register for EDC 1202 Section 150 at the Records Office (see PDF file: EDC 1202 Course Description ).
