Build Your Technology and Teaching Expertise (BYTE) Week is back. Faculty and staff are invited to take advantage of the January break by learning new computer skills in one of the 39 workshops offered between Jan.14 and 18.
New this session are digital imaging workshops such as “Web-ready PDF File Creation,” “Creating Streaming Video over the Web,” and “Image Capture Using Digital Camera.” Most workshops last two to three hours.
Participants may take individual workshops or earn a certificate by completing a track in either web development or online teaching. Individuals completing a track may also receive Continuing Education Units. Track workshops cover planning a web site; overview of tools to create web pages; creating web pages; meeting the Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility requirements; using WebCT tools; and tools for enhancing your course. There may be several workshop options under each main topic.
BYTE Week offerings 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. The workshops are free, but registration is required. To view the listings and register online, visit ittraining.irc.gmu.edu, or call x33515 for more information.
