University Beat examines the "Faculty Technology Integration Institute," a summer program that not only helps them get connected, but stay dialed in to the most up-to-date technologies and practices.

It's been a typically busy year in Tallahassee so far. Lawmakers started the year with a special session on property insurance reform, some would say to mixed results, to be kind. The regular session produced a budget that's resulting in an October special session. And in between, another special session on property tax reform. It's a Tallahassee report card this week on Florida Matters!
