The Instructional Technology Immersion Seminar strictly focuses on adopting new and existing instructional technology resources for use in course lesson plans and in the learning environment.

A wide variety of instructional technology topics will be offered that aim to develop technology skills, which can be used to enhance the learning experience of students in and out of the classroom.
The three day seminar, held on the main campus in Columbia, will offer hands-on, practical training on a wide variety of technologies. The agenda has not yet been finalized. A $500 stipend will be provided to all attendees for full participation in the three day seminar; no partial participation or partial compensation will be permitted. In addition, breakfast and lunch will be provided each day.
To showcase knowledge obtained at the seminar, faculty will be required to incorporate at least one instructional technology learned at the seminar in a course taught in Fall 2013. The instructor will also agree to create and deliver a presentation to faculty peers during one training or faculty event during the 2013-2014 academic year.
