This January, Academic Computing is offering technology workshops for faculty and instructors on basic technologies for teaching and research, audio and video production, and building course websites with SPARK.
Many of these workshops are hands-on sessions where you can learn new technologies while working with content from your own courses.

Workshop topics include:
Academic Tools and Emerging Technologies
Our “Overview of Emerging Technologies” is a survey of recent technologies finding their way into the classroom. Check out our new workshop on using Zotero to manage references and citations.
Audio and Video Media Production
Learn how to record your lectures or develop tutorials with Camtasia, a popular “screencasting” program. Check out our new workshop on using Apple’s iLife suite (iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand) to create media you can use in lectures, or join us for a discussion on developing digital storytelling projects with students.
Course Sites in SPARK
SPARK provides an easy way to build a course website that is available only to students registered for your class. In addition to posting basic course information, we offer sessions on SPARK’s tools for discussions, online quizzes, and customizing the design of your course.
We can also present any of our workshops specifically for your department. Call us at 545-2823 for details.
