Faculty Technology Showcase events provide faculty and staff the opportunity to learn about new, innovative teaching technologies from their peers. FTS presentations are informal, interactive forums for instructors to learn practical applications, tips and techniques from colleagues. The duration of each technology showcase is approximately one-hour and is held in either the CIT conference room or training lab.
