Treks is an innovative, successful faculty development and technology integration program designed in the University of Minnesota's College of Education and Human Development. Treks provides faculty with an intensive retreat experience in which they consider their professional and course goals and determine how academic technologies can serve and support these goals. Treks provides faculty with the necessary time, space, motivation, inspiration, and expertise to begin or further their academic technology journey. This program gains in popularity each year and has become extremely competitive. Presentation participants will learn how they can apply lessons learned from Treks to their own institutions.
