11/26/07 - The Technology Learning Center is Going Green!Remember those paper brochures with technology training calendars sent out a few times per year? Many of those found their way to recycle bins, garbage cans, and eventually to landfills. We want to change that!

In an effort to save resources and money, the TLC will not longer send out brochures to every single faculty and staff member, but will send emails just a couple of times per semester via CCSF Wide Distribution Email. We'll provide a link to an electronic copy of the calendar that you can print out if you wish. OR you can call the TLC at 239-3554 to receive a paper copy in your campus mailbox. This way you can receive the paper copy if you wish and we can avoid waste.

The workshop schedule is always available at: . There you can print a PDF of the calendar, view the schedule listed chronologically, or peruse the calendar view. When the new schedule becomes available each semester, you'll receive an email to let you know. Thank you for helping us save trees and CCSF resources!
