iLife ’08 for faculty: Hands-on, project-based learning

Do you have iLife ’08 but you’re not sure what’s new or how to use all the iLife ’08 applications? In this workshop, faculty will have an opportunity to learn about and create a curriculum-related project in each iLife application. Using the Step Guides and project content from the new “Apple Media Series: iLife ’08 for the Classroom”, you’ll be able to work at your own pace and get support from experienced iLife ’08 users. Bring your own computer with iLife ’08 installed, and we will install a few sample files for you to work with.

Attend either Session 1 (10 a.m.-noon) or Session 2 (1-3 p.m.) on Tuesday, Sept. 9, in Room 213 of the K-State Student Union.  No preregistration is required.  For more information, contact Bryan Vandiviere at bzv@k-state.edu.
