BCC Mobile Initiative Fall 2013 — Invitation
This Fall, the Center for Teaching and Learning is continuing the BCC Mobile Initiative. This Initiative is based on extensive research, discussions, and consultation with faculty.
Up to 8 BCC Faculty and Teaching Staff are invited to attend a series of three workshops (6 hours total) to learn about and develop skills with the iPad mobile device platform. Participants will need to commit to attending the three workshops, and completing short exercises and assessments with their iPads.
