Build Your Technology and Teaching Expertise (BYTE) Week is scheduled for the week of May 14-18, with more than 40 free workshops planned.

BYTE workshops are presented three times a year to faculty, staff, graduate research assistants, graduate teaching assistants, TAP and TAC students in an effort to increase their technology skills to support the classroom and the university. The workshops range from teaching specific software applications to incorporating various technologies into the syllabus and other aspects of work life.

A new workshop, “Introduction to Photoshop CS2,” will be presented on Thursday, May 17, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in Innovation Hall, Room 334.

Some other topics are “Banner Finance Self Service,” “WIKI: A Practical Guide for Educators” and “Eureka! Discovering Rich Sources of Copyright.”

Participants may take individual workshops or earn certificates of completion and Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The track workshop tracks include Planning and Creating a Web site, Teaching with Online Tools, Graphic Creation, Manipulation and Animation and Microsoft Office Fundamentals.

BYTE Week workshops are presented by the Information Technology Unit Training Council, with representatives from the Department of Instructional Technology and Support Services, the University Libraries, Continuing and Professional Education, Human Resources and Fiscal Services.
