April - Getting Started & Looking BackThe MSU IT Educational Technology workshops in April have a split focus: 1) resources for newer educators getting started in the summer & 2) deep dive into D2L tools for course review. If you want to review past workshops, please check out the archive of workshop recordings on the MSU Tools and Technologies site and the Instructional Technology & Development Mediaspace channel. As always, if you would like a one-on-one consultation on course design or academic technologies, please submit a service request to the MSU Help Desk and ask for the Instructional Technology & Development team.
You may also want to check out the MSU IT Training Team's offering list (yep, there are two IT teams with free virtual trainings!).
