It may be a shorter work week because of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday observance, but at the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology, it will also be a busy one. From our popular introduction to Microsoft Excel, to using Clickers in the classroom, to a highly requested workshop on Prezi, there really is something for everyone this week. Plus, seats are still available—though filling fast—for these workshops!
The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology is pleased to once again offer a wide variety of technology-oriented workshops for faculty and staff.

Believe it or not, Pinterest can help educators, like you, connect to students, think up new and creative lesson plans, provide educational literature, and so much more.
