Classroom Integrated Technology Workshops
The Office of Technology Services (OTS) is pleased to offer workshops to teach students technology that may be used in classroom assignments. Our Student Mega Lab staff understands students sometimes have difficulty with technology integrated assignments. For this reason, it is important for faculty members to take advantage of monthly, free Student Computer Workshops offered by OTS– Student Mega Lab staff. Events are free but require registration. Each workshop is 50 minutes in length and can be repeated as many times as desired. OTS offers several workshops from which you can choose from. Please see below the list of available classes.
