The ADP Center hosts a variety of events and workshops throughout the semester to deliver quality professional development.
We are excited to announce we have diversified our offerings to put together an incredible program with new topics which compliment many of your favorites from previous semesters. Workshops range from beginner to intermediate and cover a wide array of topics which recognize students’, faculty members’, staff members’ and future teachers’ diverse backgrounds and special interests in building upon their knowledge of technology and its implementation.
Workshop facilitators use an engaging, hands-on approach to maximize the amount of time that participants have working with the tools and apps.
We use software installed on the ADP Center computers, but feel free to bring your own device. Participants leave our workshops armed with new ideas and strategies that can be implemented in their practice.
