Faculty Technology Bootcamp

Need Any Help with Technology? Join us at Bootcamp!

Before each semester, the iTeam facilitates Faculty Technology Bootcamp for all new, returning, full time, or adjunct faculty. BootCamp is a concentrated, multi-day work session dedicated to course preparation and faculty technology needs for the upcoming semester. Bring your ideas, come with questions, and work with the iTeam to introduce a new tool with confidence and skill.
 
Faculty Bootcamp is also a good time to take a Blackboard Orientation training or other seasonal workshop. Review the detailed upcoming Bootcamp Schedule below. Register for all workshops on the IT Training Calendar. 

Don't forget the Wine and Cheese -RSVP! 

Spring 2019
