As August approaches, ITS Training Services is gearing up for their annual SummerFest event – a back-to-school event for faculty, instructors, and graduate students providing online technology training on the Penn State tools used for teaching and learning. The event takes place the week before classes begin (August 18 through August 22), giving participants the opportunity to brush up on ANGEL skills, learn gradebook tools, prepare surveys in Qualtrics and more, making it the perfect transition back into school mode.
So mark your calendars now and register for one of the many sessions being offered, including another instance of the Designing Assessments Series created by ITS Training Services and the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence. All of the sessions are free and online, so even if you’re not back on campus in time to attend, you can attend remotely from wherever is convenient for you.
