May 2013 New Media Faculty Development Workshops
Kelvin Smith Library and the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities invite you to register for two hands-on faculty development workshops facilitated by Digital Learning & Scholarship’s Creative New Media Officer, Jared Bendis, and Baker-Nord's Digital Humanities Manager, Lee Zickel.
Throughout the Spring 2013 semester, a diverse group of faculty attended a 13-week New Media Literacy reading seminar that was aimed at changing the way people think about media. In contrast, these hands-on workshops are about both thinking and doing.
Both workshops are free to attend, but space is strictly limited to 12 participants per series. Don't be shy! Everyone has the ability to attend these workshops if you are willing to take the time.
If you are interested in attending either series or have any questions, please email Jared Bendis at firstname.lastname@example.org.

During this two-day introductory level workshop, we will work together to better understand the available tools that allow us to more efficiently manage the mass of information that is an inevitable part of being digital. We will go over how to best use Google Apps including tips, tricks and automation in Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Maps and YouTube that will help increase the efficacy of your time and productivity.
