Faculty Technology Training Classes
Scheduled technology training classes are customized for faculty needs and include examples of the use of technology in the classroom. These classes are task oriented, last 1-2 hours and are offered in a relaxed, hands-on environment.
Instruction is learner-centered and designed to address faculty training needs and requirements. Some examples of faculty training workshops include:
- Excel data analysis, creating budgets, budget analysis, working with pivot tables, etc.
- Learning to work with digital media, including downloading images, basic image editing, optimizing images for the web, etc.
PowerPoint for the classroom, including using the draw tools, notes, special effects, etc.
- Create your own website with Dreamweaver, including web basics, preparing materials, documents, images, and presentations for the web, etc.
- Publishing with Word, including formatting, creating a table of contents, a concordance file to generate an index, endnotes or footnotes, etc.
Faculty who use technology in the classroom with their students have several training support options:
- If they use software such as PowerPoint, Dreamweaver, or Excel, faculty can ask for a trainer to teach the application to their students in their classroom. Training is customized to address the learning goals and objectives as defined by the instructor.
- Faculty who are comfortable teaching their class an application can still request a trainer to help facilitate student learning by keeping everyone at the same pace.
