Call for Participants

When: Monday, January 6th; 10am – 12:00pm  
Lunch   1:00pm – 3:00pm
Where: Jones Room, 3rd Floor Woodruff Library

Come for one, come for both – stay for lunch!

Late start on the spring semester? Don’t panic! These workshops are designed to get you up and running (teaching) quickly. If you are a superstar and already have your spring courses squared away, come and work on other upcoming classes!

Morning Session: Foundations in Course Design

10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Whether you know it or not, you are a DESIGNER! Being able to use the systematic process of course design and development will streamline the time and effort it takes to put together a class and should lead to a more comprehensive and intentional experience for your students. Course design includes topics like how to write behavioral learning objectives, develop/find inclusive content, plan for active learning (flipped classrooms anyone?) and design authentic, standards-based assessments. How do you design learning experiences for long-term retention, class engagement and class discussions? Come and share what you know and learn what you don’t!

LUNCH – 12:00 – 1:00

Afternoon Session: Teaching with Technology

1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Technology is here, and it is staying here, often in students’ pockets, purses, book bags or all of the above. Might as well take advantage! This workshop will look at ways to leverage technology to support student communication, engagement, learning, and assessment. Topics include how to set up a cohesive Canvas site, how to use and integrate different tools within Canvas, how/when to use an instant response system, how/when to use Zoom, and more. If there is a technology you are interested in learning more about or a learning need you are struggling with, please indicate that as part of your RSVP and I will do my best to include that as part of this session!


  • Bring your laptop and any course materials with you to work on your course during the workshop(s)
  • I will provide access to a Canvas template for both sessions so you can begin planning and building your course in Canvas as we go
  • The sessions are scheduled for two hours to give you time to work and discuss ideas with your colleagues
