OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of Title III’s most important goals is to contribute to the professional development of our distance faculty in a variety of ways. To support that goal, we have a number of out-of-town training opportunities listed below which you can apply for.

Basically, you qualify for travel on Title III funds if you’ve been involved in Title III activities over the last year or are willing to commit your involvement in one of our current projects (iTeach Sitka, Peer Review, or the Fall ED593 course). For more details on how to apply for travel funds visit our Apply For Travel Funds page.
