You're Invited to Teaching with Technology - November 2-3, 2010
Did you know that technology has been effective in helping students learn faster and more effectively? Just look around and you will see that technology has become an important part of society. More so, technology has become a powerful option and tool for teaching.
This fall, Information Systems and Technology (IS&T), the Center for Teaching and Learning and the University Library cordially invite you to Teaching with Technology at GSU, a two-day event of technology workshops for GSU faculty, teaching assistants and instructional staff on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 2-3, 2010, in the Exchange, Library South, Room 106 (http://www.gsu.edu/exchange/location.htm).
To register for workshops, go to: https://webdb.gsu.edu/training_reg/admin/login.cfm?system=7
During this event, you will hear presentations about the uses of technology inside the classroom, such as Electronic Portfolios, Hybrid Courses, Tools for Online Exercises, Web 2.0 for mobile technology and much more. Training in technologies can allow educators to add multimedia options, such as podcasting, to their classes to help appeal to a greater number of students and create a more meaningful learning experience. Whether you are new to incorporating technology into your classroom or have expert experience, these workshops are an excellent opportunity to learn or provide a refresher on ways technology can benefit your teaching.
