Workshop: What Will You Carry Forward? (Aug. 23, 12–1:15 p.m.)

Last year changed everything—or did it?

CATL is partnering with faculty for a “show and tell” event via Microsoft Teams where some of your fellow instructors will show how they are moving on from last year. What did they keep? What will they discard?

We are centering the event on the idea of “flexibility” since it encapsulates many of the questions involved with making the transition from last year to this. For example, how and to what extent will you remain flexible in regards to due dates, attendance, participation, and more? How will you reuse all those online resources you made last year (labs, study guides, instructional videos) to remain flexible? How and to what extent will students be able to participate at a distance or asynchronously? Or, is now the time to teach students how to better be accountable for their own learning?

Come and hear what your fellow instructors are thinking.

CATL staff will briefly demonstrate using the VoiceThread assignment builder for creating “watch,” “comment,” and “create” assignments. This is intended to be a workshop, so please come with ideas, fully designed assignments with which we can tinker, or past snafus you might wish to address.
