To support both classroom and online learning, the new Center for Online Learning and Innovation (COLI) offers new-format workshops in Desire2Learn and a variety of other powerful web-based applications. We’ve retooled the old FacTS Center D2L workshops to better assist faculty in picking up new, or refreshing old skills essential for various class activities. We’ve also added workshops focused on practical uses for newer, easy-to-use technologies:
- Google Apps Workshop: Deliver and Accept Files With Your Class: Faculty can use Google Drive to quickly share files with students, collect video assignments, and create classroom activities and assessments built around student collaboration.
- Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Session: Google Cardboard in the Classroom: Professors will discover ways that students can explore parts of the world through low-cost, interactive 3D technology using common smartphones.
- Google Apps Workshop: Screencasting with Screencast-o-Matic and YouTube: Faculty can communicate with students in engaging, easy-to-record videos, from simply weekly reminder messages to complex digital tool demonstrations.
This year, COLI will issue digital badges for attendees at workshops. These badges recognize participants’ completion of training in new digital tools and competencies.
Sign up for the above, and other workshops and training sessions today!
