There are a number of workshops being offered this fall for faculty and staff. To see when the following workshops are offered click here. The workshops will cover the following topics.
QR Codes: What Are They and How Can You Use Them? (in cooperation with Murphy Library)
QR codes are everywhere, but you may not have paid much attention to them. They are two-dimensional bar codes, those funny, square symbols on products, advertising, billboards, in magazines, etc. When scanned with the camera on your smartphone or tablet, they direct you to more information such as a website or a link to a video. In this interactive workshop, learn about QR codes and explore ways you might use them in your teaching and learning.

Presentation by Dr. Matt Evans from UW-Eau Claire

This session will provide a forum for faculty to share information and exchange ideas about promoting active learning through the use of clickers.
