Newline RS+ Interactive Display Training

In collaboration with Media and Theater Services and Newline, the CTL will host a faculty training on the Newline RS+ Interactive Displays on March 11, 2022 beginning at 9:00 a.m. in C2427.  The training will be facilitated by G. Anderson Lake, Newline Training Specialist.

Using HEERF funds, we are offering faculty participants $50 to attend the two hour training. The Newline displays are currently being installed across campus. All Humanities Building classrooms will be outfitted with these displays; 7 Powers Building classrooms will be outfitted as well as the bottom floor of the General Studies building.

After general training, we will offer an additional 2 hour training for as many as two individuals from each division, identified by division deans, so that each division will have a point of contact for guidance in using the features of the new displays moving forward. Division points of contact will receive a $150 stipend to attend the follow-up training from 12:30-2:30 in C2427 on March 11, 2022 and serve as division leads.

The training is scheduled as follows:
