Build Your Technology and Teaching Expertise (BYTE) Week for faculty and staff is scheduled for the week of May 13-17, with more than 50 free workshops planned.
In addition to workshops on popular software programs, a focus on digital imaging continues. “Creating Buttons, Backgrounds, and Banners in Photoshop,” “Optimizing Graphic Files for the Web,” “Screen Capture Video,” and “Web-Ready PDF File Creation” are some new topics. 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 courses. 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. Registration is required. To view the complete workshop list and register online, visit ittraining.irc.gmu.edu, or call x33141 for more information.
