As a second year AT Fellow, I’ve seen the program evolve and I’m glad to be a part of this group’s accomplishments. In our wrap-up meeting towards the end of last year, an idea that was mentioned was for our group to host a workshop series for students, faculty, and staff. It certainly makes sense for our group: we come from a variety of academic backgrounds and have different skills and interests, but we all share the common goal of helping the Tufts community integrate technology into their educational and research initiatives. Therefore, we made the Academic Technology Workshop series a reality this semester.
Early this semester, our group began to brainstorm topics that we felt would be beneficial to the community, and we ended up with ideas ranging from demonstrating how to build a WordPress site to describing various programming languages to using LaTex for writing research papers. After much planning, marketing, and other logistics, we kicked off the series on October 21st and we have had three workshops so far with student, faculty, and staff attendees from various areas of the university.
This semester, the Academic Technology workshops take place on Monday afternoons from 12pm to 1pm. If you would like to get more information, please go to http://sites.tufts.edu/atfellows/events/.
