Technology Training Program
ETS offers free technology training to faculty, staff, students. Training is available as small group, one-on-one, or customized for special projects and departmental requests. Classes meet in the Academic Innovation Lab, Gleeson Library 236. Weekly open lab hours are 4 - 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
For consultations on projects, our staff members are available by appointment. Come visit us at our office in Gleeson Library basement floor GL02 or request a consultation or service online.
Every May/June, ETS offers two three-day tech intensive workshops to introduce instructional technologies to full-time and adjunct faculty. The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for faculty to learn about technologies they can use in the classroom or online that may address an instructional design challenge experienced in a course.
Interested in engaging your students and improving the learning experience in your fall courses? We invite you to discover and explore new ideas to enhance your course design in the pre-fall 2018 Instructional Design Workshops: Extending an Activity Online, Learning Actively with Active Learning, Introduction to Learning Experience Design, and Learning Design for Multimedia.
Every semester we invite faculty and guests to hold presentations on various technologies and on pedagogy that can be implemented as ideas for an engaging classroom learning experience.
This program is co-sponsored with the Tracy Seeley Center for Teaching Excellence. Faculty members lead a one-hour presentation with some room for discussion and implementation on a technology method or platform used in their course. The idea behind the program is that faculty learn best from the examples of their peers, who are tuned to the nuances of using technology in learning environments.
We sponsor the awards to create a greater awareness of achievements by faculty who are finding new ways to use information technology in education. These awards honor faculty who have demonstrated innovative uses of technology in education to improve student learning.
A day of discovery and learning. Meet with colleagues who have successfully implemented technology solutions in their courses. Learn about emerging tools and techniques to support different instructional strategies.

A lunchtime celebration showcasing all completed projects. and certificates will be awarded to all participants who complete the program requirements.
