Summer Academy

Every May the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Research holds a two day summer academy training session. Each year we focus on a different technology to help faculty enhance their teaching and engage their students.

Google-ize Summer Academy 2017

This one day Summer Academy will explore the use of Google tools for creating, sharing, and collaborating which will enhance your teaching skills and be beneficial to you, your students, and collaborators. Come for a casual, fun experience with Chad Dennis and Sara Settles to kick off your summer!
