Register by May 8 for May 13 mobile device, ebook workshop

The Center for Instructional & Learning Technologies is hosting a workshop on Learning with Mobile Devices and eBooks on May 13 for faculty to learn about supporting students in using mobile devices and eBook versions of textbooks. eBook versions of textbooks are becoming more common, and offer (or require) different ways of reading, note-taking and studying that may be unfamiliar to students. Mobile devices such as smartphones, iPads and tablets, and apps on laptops support eBook use, and also offer other study, communication and collaboration resources. These include self-assessment applications, real-time web-conferencing, and collaborative editing programs. Demonstrations and hands-on sessions will introduce you to more learning options for your students.

Workshop sessions include:
Communication and Collaboration
Study Skills Software and Apps
Product Showcase of iPads, Tablets, Smartphones
eBooks in the Classroom

The workshop is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 13th, in Education, Room 5. Lunch is provided. Please register by May 8 to reserve a lunch. Visit CILT online at http://UND.edu/cilt/workshops/workshops.cfm or contact Shae Samuelson at 777-2129 or shae.samuelson@UND.edu.
