New to Online: Converting Your Courses

Converting face-to-face classroom materials for use in an online course can be challenging. Decisions such as what formats to use and when to use synchronous or asynchronous strategies are an important part of course design.  This workshop will help you develop the knowledge and skills necessary to determine when to use asynchronous or synchronous methods and how to easily convert different types of content into web-appropriate formats for those methods. This course is developed for those interested in using social media but maintaining professional boundaries for students.

Designing a Flipped Classroom

Flipped learning is a model of teaching in which the more passive learning activities such as watching lectures, happen outside of the classroom, saving more in-person class time for interactive activities. Flipping the classroom is currently one of the most popular trends in education at all levels! In this workshop, you will explore different flipped design models and the educational benefits of the flipped design. You will gain a deeper understanding of how to implement this strategy into your own teaching.

Strategies for Supporting and Advising Students

Online and blended education programs create additional opportunities, challenges and roles for Student Services. How are your students doing in their online and blended courses? What challenges are they facing? As campuses reach out to students through new web interfaces, technologies, and portals, such services also improve access for face-to-face students. This workshop addresses these new roles and provides best practices, sustainable solutions, and transformations made possible through technology for student advising and support.
