Online Technology Training Opportunities

Registration is now open for SummerFest, a special week of workshops on teaching technologies and more.

Spring is one of the busiest times of the year across the University and it's often hard to find time to learn new skills - or brush up on old ones - that will help you on the job or in the classroom. For this reason, ITS Training Services' SummerFest event is designed to help you make the most out of the slight downtime right after finals. We want to make sure you're equipped with the tools you need as you head into the summer semesters in order to make them as effective and enjoyable as possible.

Each year, the SummerFest event gives faculty, instructors, and staff the opportunity to participate in free, online workshops on teaching technologies, such as ANGEL, and many other multi-purpose technologies, such as iPads, Yammer, Sites at Penn State, and more. The event takes place during the week after finals, May 12 - 16, and all SummerFest courses are delivered live online via Adobe Connect, making it easy to attend from anywhere. Simply click on the course title below to register. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at itstraining@psu.edu.
