Academic Technology Workshops, Projects, and Group Discussions

Workshops, projects and group discussions are presented by Academic Technology's Instructional Designers and other instructors from within the Lane community. They are designed to be short, informative, hands-on sessions or discussions covering various technologies and pedagogies as they relate to instruction. While most sessions are geared for instructors teaching online/hybrid courses, many, if not all topics will enrich all teaching practices.

Please see the ATC's homepage for more information about getting support for working with academic technology.
