Summer 2013 iPad Academy

Welcome to the Academy

Have you heard how schools and some of your fellow faculty are using iPads in and out of the classroom? Are you ready and willing to use an iPad in your teaching and other faculty duties, but need assistance with getting started? Do you need an iPad? Apply for the OIT T&L iPad Inaugural Academy. Selected participants will receive an iPad (3rd generation) and classroom integration accessories, as well as experience an exciting 2 day workshop on August 14-15, 2013 that will prepare them to effectively integrate iPad into teaching and other faculty work. The OIT Teaching & Learning iPad Academy is limited to full-time Southeast faculty.
