Welcome to the support site for the Ameritech Faculty Development Technology Program (AFDTP) workshops. The purpose of this site is to support program workshops offered in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and Kansas and to provide access for all faculty to resources created for those workshops.

  • May 16, 2001 - A technical problem has surfaced for those users accessing the site with a Macintosh and using IE 5. For some reason, the page colors do not display properly, making the pages virtually unreadable. Until we can identify and fix the problem, we would suggest that Macintosh users use Netscape Communicator instead.
  • May 10, 2001 - Registration for the KICA TLM Spring Workshop is now available. Click on Workshops and then select Kansas from the list for links to the available workshops.
  • April 12, 2001 - Many of the WFIC workshops are now open for registration, but not all of them have Announcements posted yet. Click on Workshops and then select Wisconsin from the list for links to the announcements.

  • April 12, 2001 - A second offering of the OFIC Webagogy Workshop is now available for May 17th. (I know May 17th comes before May 18th, but since this was added it is listed as #2 :^))
  • April 2, 2001 - Registration for the OFIC Webagogy Workshop is full, but there is a waiting list. If you discover you can't attend, be sure to un-register yourself to open up room for another attendee who is waiting for a slot.

The Ameritech Faculty Development Technology Program (AFDTP) is entering its fifth year and is sponsored by Ameritech, now part of SBC Communications. It is a partnership of Ameritech and the Associated Colleges of Illinois (ACI), the Michigan Colleges Foundation (MCF), the Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges (OFIC), and the Wisconsin Foundation for Independent Colleges (WFIC). The Effective Practices Program is sponsored by the Foundation for Independent Higher Education (FIHE)/UPS Venture Fund with matching funds from the AFDTP. This site is made possible by a grant from Ameritech/SBC and an in-kind contribution from Cedarville University. The thousands of faculty and dozens of independent colleges in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin who have benefited from this generosity wish to express their appreciation to Ameritech and the other organizations that have made this project possible.
