Professional Development 
 
 
One of our goals in the CTEI is to provide faculty with opportunities to grow as educators and explore new technologies and innovative ideas.  One way is by providing workshops that are offered both face-to-face and online. All online workshops are recorded and available to faculty for later viewing. Watch your Outlook calendar for invitations. All virtual workshop invitations will include the links to log in for virtual sessions.
 
Light refreshments will be served at face-to-face (F2F) sessions. Training sessions last about an hour.

CTEI Training 

 

Our training classes are sent to all faculty through an Outlook invitation. If you are not receiving these regular invitations (approximately 2 to 4 invitations each month), please contact CTEI@rush.edu to be added to the distribution list.
