Teaching with Technology Boot Camp
Taking place each year in mid-June, Teaching with Technology Boot Camp is a week-long intensive faculty professional development experience on integrating technology into everyday classroom teaching. Throughout the experience, faculty observe demonstrations and participate in guided practice with tools that help (a) present content, (b) communicate or collaborate, (c) schedule, organize, or capture, and (d) assess learning or provide feedback. Upon completion, faculty is provided mentoring from skilled practitioners to help them implement what they have learned.
