CATL continues to add to the Teaching Toolbox: a suite of resources to help you build and carry out your courses. 

Technology Toolkit 

In this section of the new CATL Resources site, we’ve created some guides to help you think about how you might wish to use technology to support your learning outcomes and pedagogyWe’ve created technology guides for things like Collaborate Ultra, VoiceThread, Kaltura My Media Video Recording, Video Quizzes, and more!

Resilient Teaching Toolkit 

In this section, we’ve created some resources about how to teach when the center of gravity for your courses may be in flux due to the nature of the Fall 2020 semester. Some pages include things like optional attendance policies, interpersonal activities, equity challenges, and preserving class community. We’ve also created pages around “Practical Hybrid Course Tips” and how to “Navigate masked in-person and online group work.”

“Pulse of the Semester”

The start of the fall semester typically has a comforting rhythm as we return from the summer to a predictable schedule of activities. This year we will not be able to fall into our regular routines as the typical benchmarks—five-week grades, mid-semester evaluations, ratcheting up for end-of-semester projects—will all be different.  

While we can’t put everything back to normal, the Center is working on ways to help you hit these benchmarks in ways that are doable under our present circumstances. 

Be on the lookout for the following resources coming your way this fall: 

  • providing feedback (weeks four and five) 
  • keeping the core of an activity or assignment when shifting to a new learning environment 
  • mid-term evaluations 
  • engaging students who have become unresponsive 
  • gearing up for culminating projects 
  • making referrals and accommodations

Modalities Guide

In order to help instructors plan for teaching in Fall 2020, CATL has a few guiding questions and suggestions based on models circulating in the educational development community, but contextualized to fit with what we have the capacity to do here at UW-Green Bay. This document assumes that a fully face-to-face course with no digital or online complement is not feasible in our context.
