President Harrison’s remarks during her keynote address at the faculty retreat on January 14 called for consideration of “new innovations”. The President encouraged faculty to consider participating in a pilot initiative that would provide training on how to use and incorporate the iPad and other educational tools into the classroom, and how faculty might use iBooks Author to generate dynamic, low cost e-textbooks.
