MITI ~ "Master It & Take It" Workshops

About the MITI Master It & Take It Initiative . . .

New Hampshire educators are amazingly creative at using the teaching resources available to them, and we have always highlighted these creative teaching and learning strategies in our McAuliffe Stars sessions. NHSTE leadership also understands that to embrace new teaching and learning resources, educators need opportunities to explore and master these resources. The MITI – Master It & Take It – workshops are designed to provide educators with both the exposure and training necessary to investigate the potential of new and emerging learning devices.
