Faculty Training Opportunities
Many training opportunities exist for Puget Sound faculty who are interested in using technology in their teaching. Our campus Educational Technology group offers direct training and support on-campus. If you have a specific topic area which you don’t see listed here, please contact us and we will work with you to identify the best resource (on or off campus) to meet your needs.
Our on-campus Educational Technology group is in an exciting growth phase! Please bear with us as we put staff and other resources into place to provide you with the best support possible. We will be offering an ongoing series of faculty trainings, which can be delivered individually and in small group settings. These trainings will be listed here as they are developed.
Off-Campus Training Opportunities
This section provides links to organizations as well as specific educational technology training opportunities which may be of interest to our faculty. For those opportunities which involve a cost to attend or participate (either in person or online), faculty have a few options: to self pay or to ask for departmental funding for some or all of the cost.
This page will be updated regularly with training opportunities as they are announced. If you know of a great training resource which isn’t listed here and which might interest other faculty, please share that with Cindy Riche, and it will be added to this page.
