What are  the Instructional Technology Open Lab and Teaching with Technology Workshops / Open Labs?

The Teaching with Technology Workshops and Instructional Technology Open Labs are an effort to have a “space” available for faculty and staff to participate in training, brainstorming, and show-and-tell sessions. The classrooms have been reserved (thanks Starr) for the entire semester. Even if a training session is not scheduled, the classrooms will be open for one-on-one assistance, brainstorming sessions, and show-and-tell sessions.

When and where are the sessions?

3:15-4:00 pm



Sheridan – W139A

Gillette 153

Sheridan – W139B

Gillette 153

Some training sessions will originate from Sheridan…some from Gillette. The reserved classrooms are ITV classrooms so both campuses can benefit. I know the 3:15-4:00 timeframe may not work for everyone. We will reassess this project and request feedback at the end of the semester.

What training opportunities are envisioned?

Workshop topics could include Turnitin, SoftChalk, TurningPoint clickers, Camtasia, iTunesU, Respondus, ePortfolios, class blogging, geotagging, class wikis, image editing with Photoshop, advanced SmartBoard features, and many other possibilities.

Can I conduct a training session?

Please contact me ( or x2510) if you would like to share with your colleagues…..


- a face-to-face or online teaching strategy (assessment, classroom management, etc.)

- a Microsoft Office or other software training session

- FREE software tools for classroom/online use

- a cool instructional tool (clickers, SmartBoards, wireless chalkboards, etc.)

- brainstorming sessions on tips and tricks, ideas, and/or concerns relating to the instructional experience

Do I have to wait until Mondays and Tuesdays to receive one-on-one assistance?

No. The technical and instructional support staff are available as always. The open lab just gives us the opportunity to better organize training and roundtable discussions on instruction and technology.
