Faculty2Faculty Event!!

Please join us for an event that promotes the real world aspects of applicability of using technology in the classroom. This seminar, Faculty2Faculty, will involve learning about how your peers are using technology in their classrooms. The presenters have been encouraged to be honest about their experiences and share the good and bad aspects of their technology use. This will allow you to learn from their experiences and determine which technologies will work best for you.

Come out and support your peers and learn about using technology!
