By Purnell T. Cropper | August 22, 2014

Arcadia University’s instructional designers and instructional technologists have announced the fall 2014 line-up of technology workshops for faculty and staff. This is a great opportunity to find out more about instructional technology and instructional design. All workshops are presented by Arcadia University instructional designers and instructional technologists Timothy Belloff (GIS), Valerie Green (Arcadia Online), and Stephen Tippett (TCGS). A workshop schedule is available on the Arcadia University Instructional Technology Blog.

More than 30 workshops for the global Arcadia community will be offered this semester, in-person and streaming online. All workshops will be carried out in the Instructional Technology Faculty Resource Lab located in the basement of Landman Library. All workshop attendance will be by drop in, no registration required. Workshops will be hands-on, and computers will be available in the lab. Due to lab seating, in person attendance is limited. Online attendance for many of the workshops will be through GoToMeeting, and there will be links on the schedule of workshops to connect to the GoToMeeting for that particular time. All workshops will be listed in Eastern Standard Time.

For more information, contact an instructional technologist or instructional designer.
