Professional Development Opportunities

Webinars provided by the SUNY Center for Professional Development 


Sponsored by FACT2 Task Group on Mobile Technology in Teaching and Learning

During the 2014-15 academic year, the FACT2 Task Group on Mobile Technology in Teaching and Learning has been investigating effective practices in educational uses of mobile technology. The group has assembled a webinar series, in collaboration with the SUNY Center for Professional Development, on nine unique topics, all free, and all easily accessed via Collaborate. The series highlights several examples of effective practice in the use and support of mobile technology in teaching/learning. Each session will be hosted by one or more faculty members (or a CTO) across campuses, who are collaborating to share their expertise and experience. Many sessions have extra benefits, including resource guides about the practices featured in the webinar. The sessions cross disciplines, teaching applications, and mobile devices. There is something for everyone...novices to experts. Please join us to learn and to share; register for one or all nine. Remember...they are FREE!
