Once again this year, PSU will host a one day event: Spotlight on Faculty. It's a time when faculty can share with one another some of the ways they are using Technology in the classroom. It's difficult to keep abreast of all the choices that are out there, and even more difficult to know which are worth your time. If you are using technology in your classroom, we encourage you to submit a proposal. And for those of you not inclined to speak about your use of technology, please plan to attend. There really are a lot of very interesting and dynamic uses of technology at PSU, but most of us simply don't know about them.
To submit a proposal: http://plymouth.edu/online/events/2011_spotlight.html
Our second annual Spotlight on Faculty is scheduled for March 30th, 2011. This year's Spotlight will have a much larger audience, as the sessions will be opened up to faculty from all of the USNH campuses. A collaboration between Academic Technologists from the various campuses is making workshops and other events accessible to faculty from across the University system. This year proposals will only be accepted from Plymouth State faculty. We will begin accepting proposals in mid-January. If you are using technology in your teaching, please consider submitting a proposal. Last year's presentations spanned a wide range of technologies: from internet radio to mind-mapping. We'd love to have you participate.
Also, registration for our January Jamboree is now open. Faculty from all USNH campuses are welcome to attend. We hope to see you soon 🙂
