Hello Teachers,

LON-CAPA training is again being provided to teachers at no cost this 
summer.  This summer's workshop is both for teachers new to LON-CAPA and 
for those experienced with the system.  The workshop will be on MSU's 
campus from Monday, June 23 through Thursday, June 26.  You can register 
for the workshop at:


This year, you have the option of obtaining State Board Continuing 
Education Units for attending the LON-CAPA training.  Credits earned 
will be determined by how many training sessions you attend.  The 
workshop fee and SB-CEU fees are waived this year due to external 
support.  All lunches will be provided.

1) Registration deadline is Sunday, June 15th or until the first 20 
teachers register.
2) Deadline to reserve affordable on-campus housing is Sunday, June 1st. 
  See the registration form for details about housing.

For new teachers, the workshop will emphasize all the basic skills 
required to effectively run classes for the 08/09 academic year.  New 
teachers must attend the sessions on Monday, June 23. The goal for new 
teachers is to master sufficient materials to be able to use LON-CAPA in 
a class for the coming academic year.

For current users, this is an opportunity to improve authoring skills 
and learn about new features.  Experienced users do not need to attend 
the Monday sessions, but are welcome to join and help teachers new to 

For both groups, it will be an opportunity to:

1) Meet and exchange ideas with fellow teachers
2) Assemble materials for the forthcoming academic year
3) Earn SB-CEU credits
4) Earn MSU graduate credit. If interested please contact Dr. Merle 
Heidemann at heidema2@msu.edu to make arrangements.

Please communicate this information with your K-12 colleagues in your 
school and at other schools. Let's make this the best workshop to date!
