In the Spring 2016 semester, the Academic Partnership for Instruction (API), a division of Information Services (IS), is offering a series of development opportunities for faculty and staff. These sessions will highlight a variety of technologies to enhance the student learning experience and will provide ideas both for faculty who are just starting with technology as well as those who currently use it for both on-campus and online courses.
To read descriptions and register for these sessions, go to is.unomaha.edu/calendar. All faculty and staff are welcome; however, space is limited and registration is required unless otherwise noted.
