This year, all our sessions will focus on the topic of Faculty Development. Discussions will include, but are not limited to:

As always, participants will have the opportunity to share, learn and collaborate with their colleagues from NWACC member institutions.

Workshop Attendance and Cost: Information technologists, librarians, and others from NWACC member institutions who assist faculty, students, and staff in making effective use of educational technologies are welcome to participate in this roundtable. Attendance is limited to 50 participants. NWACC will subsidize the registration, hotel, and travel costs for all participants.

Award for Educational Technology: The Award for Innovation in Educational Technologies recognizes instructional technologists (or technology teams) at NWACC member institutions who have displayed innovation in the design, development, and/or support of instructional technologies.

The award program is designed to share proven strategies and inspire new ideas in the integration of information technology with teaching and learning. To facilitate this, recipients present their work and host a plenary session at the Instructional Technology Roundtable. Winners receive a $500 cash award.
