Fall 2015 ETMC Faculty/Staff Tech Workshops
We will be offering fall semester workshops exploring new technologies in the COE (see schedule below). If none of these work in your schedule, we also will do custom times for individuals or small groups and will schedule these at your discretion. If you have other topics that you would like some in-service with, please feel free to suggest these and we will do our best to structure a learning experience for anyone interested.
If you plan to attend a workshop, please let us know by calling us at 8-6302 or email email@example.com. Walk-ins are also welcome.
