Technology on Your Own Terms: Fall 2011 Workshops

Each semester, the Weinberg Memorial Library and the Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence (CTLE) offer a faculty and staff advancement series called Technology on Your Own Terms. The series introduces University faculty and staff to emerging technologies in order to encourage innovation in the workplace and in the classroom. We’re continuing the series in Fall 2011 with two new workshops:

Changing Channels: The Next Generation of Television
Tuesday, October 18 from 12pm-1pm in WML305

In this workshop, we’ll look at new options in home entertainment and media, from HDTV and BluRay to streaming video. We’ll talk about what consumers should look for when purchasing new television screens and introduce new streaming services like Hulu Plus, Netflix, and Apple TV. A light lunch will be provided. (Taught by Jason Oakey, Office of Instructional Technology)

Tools for Tablets: Apps, Sites, and Widgets for Tablet Computers
Wednesday, November 16 from 12pm-1pm in WML305

This workshop will discuss programs that will enhance your use of personal tablets, like the iPad, so that you can get the most out of these devices. We will look at file storage options, word processing programs, as well as social networks and e-reader applications. A light lunch will be provided.
