Connections IT Faculty Development Institute Closes the IT Instructional Gap
What's the biggest challenge for colleges wanting to provide state-of-the art instruction in information technology? Keeping up with industry! Learn about a new and affordable summer peer-to-peer professional development program beginning in 10 states in 2003, and about how it can help narrow the 18- to 24-month gap between new technology adoption and its introduction into academic curriculum. Session participants leave with concrete procedures for implementing a Working Connections IT Faculty Development Institute at their home institutions.
