Online Technology Training Opportunities

Registration is Open for SummerFest II Back-to-School Events

As August approaches, we're gearing up for our annual SummerFest events. These are back-to-school events for faculty, instructors, and graduate students that provides online technology training about the Penn State tools used for teaching and learning. 

These events will be held August 18 - 22, 2014, the week before classes begin. This gives participants the opportunity to brush up on ANGEL skills, learn gradebook tools, prepare surveys in Qualtrics, and much more, which makes the perfect transition for "back-to-school" mode. 

If you're not a faculty member or instructor, don't worry! ALL Penn State staff are invited to attend these sessions!

Mark your calendars now and register for one of the many sessions offered, including another instance of the Designing Assessments Series created by ITS Training Services and the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence. All of the sessions are free and online, so even if you're not back on campus in time to attend, you can attend remotely from wherever is most convenient for you.

We hope that you have a relaxing and rejuvenating remainder of your summer, and we look forward to seeing you in August!
