conference on learning technologies for faculty and staff of educational institutions.
Included in the program for this year's FSI are hands-on sessions in computer
labs, discussion sessions and presentations on a wide variety of topics, an electronic showcase session, and social activities to allow
participants to get to know and learn from one another.
The Institute will:

the World Wide Web and asynchronous conferencing
- introduce participants to the use of the internet and computer technologies
in teaching and learning
- advance the knowledge of those already familiar with the World Wide Web
and its uses in education
- create a network for sharing in the development of the curriculum and use
of learning technologies
- provide an opportunity for faculty teaching in similar disciplines to share

The FSI is directed at faculty and staff preparing to begin teaching and learning

The FSI 2006 will be held on the campus of the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.
