Now in its third year, ITAP has experimented with and developed new approaches to consortium-level course support, pedagogy, blended learning, professional development, and networking, all of which create heightened agility, connectivity, and bold new opportunities in our educational technology efforts.Please join our apprentices and mentors for student presentations to understand the unique benefits and challenges involved in this work.
