Faculty Technology Institute Workshops




We offer one workshop per track at 9 and 10:30 each day, break for lunch, and then host a general afternoon session open to everyone in the L&C community.

We are currently working on the 2015 schedule which will offer a mix of hands-on training, discussion and demonstration and short 20 minute “Quick Byte” sessions centered around Assessment and Data Analytics, Teaching in the Cloud, Multimedia Methods, and Digital Skills for Students.

In the meantime, for a taste of what to expect see the 2014 schedule below:  

2014 Track 1 - Everyday Essentials

Sessions in this track focus on a wide range of technology you use regularly both in and out of the classroom.

2014 Track 2 - The Online Classroom 

Previously the Moodle track, this year we decided to focus our second track on the online classroom, regardless of the platform.  Since the class web page is often the starting point for online interactions with your class, we will have hands-on sessions that focus on building class websites in Moodle or Google Sites.  Other sessions will focus on designing online activities no matter the publishing tool.

2014 Track 3 - Teaching with Technology

The physical classroom is still very much part of what we do at Lewis & Clark.  In this track we focus on thoughtful incorporation of digital and visual literacy into your curriculum as well as specific technology you can use in the classroom or for digital assignments.
