Welcome Back!

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome back to a new school year of Instructional Television! I hope that all of you had a wonderful summer!

We begin this year without our long-time ITV Manager, Dr. David Yates. David decided to retire in July to take a position with Southeastern University. We will miss him and wish him well in his new endeavor.

As for ITV, we are planning the usual things for the year.

First of all, The 2015 Polk County Video Contest with ten categories will remain the same. The rules and details of the contest will be updated and e-mailed to you soon.

This year we are planning monthly workshops to be held at our ITV Office, in the iMac lab, at the Jim Miles Professional Development Center. Most weeks we will offer a different class, which would be Final Cut Pro X (all levels), Motion, Technical, and How to Create a Daily News Show.

Please e-mail your ideas for workshops to itvstaff@polk-fl.net.

If you are new to ITV, welcome!
