Justin Barreto, Mark Miotto and Joseph Sample will be hosting a series of faculty workshops focused on using Digital Interactive Textbooks. This provides faculty with: 


  • Low-cost alternative to expensive, underused textbooks
  • Conversational text, embedded with interactive questions, discussions, simulations & more to engage students with course materials
  • Easily customize content to perfectly fit course syllabus & keep updated
  • Insight into student preparation with responses to embedded activities 
  • Accompanied Classroom Engagement Tool & Interactive Homework Assignments to keep students engaged before, during and after class. 
  • Access to the Top Hat Marketplace with thousands of interactive course materials that can be used at your disposal
  • Publishing Opportunities with remunerations of 45% royalties and 100% copyright


These workshops provide an introduction to the new Top Hat x VT partnership, as well as a high-level interactive content walkthrough.  Joining them will be some of your VT peers who will share their experiences with Top Hat and be available for a live Q&A. 


For those interested afterwards, Justin will be scheduling 1:1 tailored demonstrations to get faculty set up for the Fall term.
