Technology Assistance and Training Opportunities

The ETDL staff arranges for relevant training for faculty and staff on new technologies. The goal of this training is to help faculty and staff determine the appropriateness of new technologies and to become competent in using them. In addition to formal training, the department also provides opportunities to learn about technology informally through conversations and mentoring.
