Projects range from gaining skills to effectively use technology equipment to creating instructional materials and student projects to establishing and maintaining an online presence related to teaching and learning.

For 2011-12, twelve (12) new participants will be selected. During the year, participants will attend trainings in Sacramento on the following dates:
