Many attendees cannot be present for our workshops because of prior commitments or time constraints. To assist them, we now offer e-Workshops! An e-Workshop is available on-line (hence the "e" for electronic) to anyone with a web browser and Internet access. We will record all e-Workshops making it possible for you to watch a missed session or review a workshop video whenever you like.

Where do they take place?
We offer workshops in two different modalities: on-campus and on-line. On-campus workshops take place in Max Roth, 3rd floor conference room. We accomodate up to 8 participants. Our e-workshops (on-line), on the other hand, are delivered through OnSync which does not require any install in the attendee's computer.
Podcasting with GarageBand
Podcasts are a great resource to make your class content, presentations, and support materials available to your students online. Students can download podcasts to their MP3 players, mobile devices, or computers and set up RSS feeds to receive future files automatically. The goal of this workshop is to produce simple podcasts using Apple’s GarageBand software, and make them available online for student access and subscription.
Using Classroom Clickers
Ever wondered what it would be like to use a student response system like "clickers" in your class? CPS Clickers are a great way to engage every student in your class and access their level of comprehension. They can also be used to give quizzes and take surveys. This introductory workshop will demonstrate their use and show you how easily they can be introduced into your class or any meeting where individual responses are important.
Google in Higher Education
This workshop explores Google technologies (Gmail, Docs, Scholar, Groups, Sites, Notebook, Youtube.Edu, and Wave) and their application in higher education. We will address concerns about how and why these technologies should be utilized in curricular activities as well as a presentation of each technology, benefits, disadvantages, and a quick and easy walkthrough.
Online Interaction with OnSync
OnSync live web conferencing software is available for you to lecture remotely, confer with colleagues, even record lectures, all with video and desktop sharing in a simple to use interface. This introductory workshop will help you decide if this software will fill your needs to interact remotely.
Tune up your online course
In this e-workshop, you will have the opportunity to reflect critically on key needs of your audience: students expectations from on-line courses; how they learn better; case studies and published research; and how human interaction can improve improving the learning experience.
