Coastal Carolina University graduate students conducted technology training workshops for Horry County teachers in campus labs on Feb. 20. Billed as the first annual Instructional Technology Symposium, the event was the result of an ongoing partnership between instructional technology faculty in the College of Education and Horry County professional development administrators. Graduate students in their final leadership seminar for the M.Ed. in Learning & Teaching program served as instructors, guiding more than 80 teachers through 21 concurrent session topics. “The success of this event,” said Dr. Joe Winslow, Coordinator of the M.Ed. program, “reflects our continued commitment to serve the needs of local educators. We are already planning for an expanded implementation next year, using live webcasting to reach other teachers in our region.”
