It’s the announcement you’ve all been waiting for. Registration for the 3rd annual MCC Math & Technology Workshop will begin in 10 days. The workshop will be held (as always) at Muskegon Community College in Muskegon, Michigan.
As always, I have to thank our AWESOME sponsors for the 2010 workshop (without these companies and organizations there would be no workshop):
You can participate in this week-long workshop at three levels:
Technology Explorers: This week-long workshop is designed to assist college mathematics instructors to get up-to-date on technology for teaching mathematics and to begin to participate in Web-based instruction. The workshop will cover a wide variety of topics and skills all related to teaching mathematics with technology and the Internet. Participants will go back to their campus with a plan for how they will incorporate technology into their teaching. Participants will also receive free copies of some of the software they have learned how to use. 2010 graduates will receive Camtasia Studio, SnagIt, Mathematica, MathType, USB headsets, and Wacom peripheral tablets! Registration fee is $150. There are 26 spaces available.
Technology Adventurers: The advanced workshop is designed for instructors who already have quite a bit of technology experience, or for returning participants. We take a look at designing digital presentations in a variety of forms, social networking, blogs, virtual worlds, and much more. Advanced participants have about half of their time free to work on projects of their own choosing. Advanced workshop graduates will receive Camtasia Studio, SnagIt, and Mathematica. Registration fee is $100. There are 26 spaces available.
Technology Navigators: Many participants from past workshops have expressed an interest in returning for the week just to hang out and work on their own projects. We can provide quiet spaces for you to work (and soundproof ones if you’d like to record videos). We’d love to have you back, but we also need your help to pass on what you’ve learned and to keep this workshop going. Registration fee is $50 with 4 hours of volunteering, or free with 8 hours of volunteering. (Limit? How many of you want to come?)
Workshop Director: Maria H. Andersen, Muskegon Community College
Assistant Director: Elizabeth Hamman, Cypress College
Mathematica Training: Debra Woods, University of Illinois – Champaign
This workshop is both awesome training and a fantastically good time. To read about last year’s workshop, go here. Many participants pay out of their own pocket to attend because there’s nothing else quite like it. I look forward to meeting this year’s crop of participants!
For directions on how to get pre-registered on November 13, or for information on travel & lodging go to the workshop website. We will do our best to chase away the freak thunderstorms this year!
