As the instructor of a course, you are an expert when it comes to content, but are you aware of the resources available to students in the technology lab?  The purpose of this workshop is to familiarize adjunct instructors with the software and hardware available in the lab and to clarify the instructor's role in the lab setting.  Instructors will be provided with a list of the lab's policies and procedures and a generic syllabus with sample grading policy.  A tour of the lab facility will be conducted, together with a discussion of expectations of students, lab assistants and course instructors in the lab setting. There will also be a "hands-on" demonstration of educational software programs and a review of basic trouble-shooting techniques. 


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • List and explain the lab policies and procedures
  • Explain the roles of course instructor, lab assistants and students in the technology lab setting.
  • Describe the lab grading policy as outlined on the generic lab syllabus
  • List and describe the software programs available to students in the lab
