abstract

Are you overloaded in your teaching and administrative tasks? This workshop
will allow you to identify the tasks that your job requires to meet the goals
of the classroom and the institution. The presenter will provide an overview
of 16 categories of digital responsibility. The participants then complete a
rubric to discover their technology load. Coping strategies will also be
presented and discussed at the conclusion of this workshop.
