What is this?

Training classes introduce faculty to a major topic or tool in instructional technology, and provide a place where faculty help each other find ways to use the tool appropriately to enhance their particular classes.

Why would I use this?

If you want some help getting started with a particular technology tool, or want some help thinking through how to adapt an assignment to take advantage of the technology tool.

How do I use this?

We publicize classes throughout the year on different topics. A slate of classes for academic year 13-14 will be coming up!

You can contact us at any time by emailing fcshelp@hofstra.edu, or phoning the Faculty Support Center at 516-463-6894 and RSVPing to set up an appointment to review the instructional technology options you have.

If there is a topic that you would like to see covered that is not listed here, please let us know! E-mail fcshelp@hofstra or call 516-463-6894 with your request.
