On-Campus Event Descriptions [Workshops, Presentations, Teaching Bites, and Faculty Special Interest Groups]

Adobe Connect
If you only learn one new technology this semester come and learn how to narrate Powerpoint slides online to deliver a live or archived example for students to view.  An ideal application to learn in order to make up classes that are cancelled due to weather issues and a particularly useful tool for Online Instructors delivering fully-online or hybrid courses.  Use Adobe Connect to explain muddy points. Suitable for instructors.
Barriers and Access for Students with Disabilities: How Faculty and Staff Can Help
This session will focus on student perceptions of classroom barriers. A qualitative study will highlight student relational barriers with faculty and how faculty may accommodate the needs of his/her student(s). We will also discuss the legislative call for educators to answer the needs and requests of students. Some reasonable accommodations will be outlined.
Canvas: Modules & Pages
In this workshop we will create pages, manage course content and materials using the Modules and Pages tools in Canvas. This course is designed to give instructors who already have some knowledge of Canvas a more in-depth hands on experience with creating pages as well as creating and managing modules. The workshop is beneficial for both online and in-class instructors who are looking for better ways to present in-class material rather than using PowerPoint. Class presentations/materials are then saved with the course (making them easier to find), easier to export to the next semester, and additionally provide students with notes for review. This course is one of the required classes in the Basic Online Course Development Certificate.
Canvas: Speedgrader & Crocodoc
In this workshop we will explore the use of SpeedGrader in various types of Canvas assignments and the Crocodoc tool to grade online documents. This course is designed to give instructors who already have some knowledge of Canvas a more in-depth hands on experience with grading options.
Canvas: Quizzes
In this workshop we will explore the use of the Quizzes tool in Canvas. Create quizzes, manage Question Banks, and look at Quiz settings and how to moderate Quizzes. This course is designed to give instructors who already have some knowledge of Canvas a more in-depth hands on experience with the Quizzing tool.
Echo360 Workshop
Lecture Capture/Personal Capture software allows faculty to create and easily make available course content for their face to face, hybrid, or online classes.  This session will provide an overview of how Echo360 works, the Classroom Lecture Recording service, and a demonstration of the Echo360 student portal.  Participants will also be shown the Echo360 Personal Capture software that allows them to create recordings from their laptops, office workstations, or at home and post them to the Web for their students to view. Lecture Capture can be a powerful learning tool when used to review in-class lectures or catch up on a missed class.  The Personal Capture is one way to make short videos of key or difficult concepts to supplement readings, or to provide first exposure to course content in a flipped- classroom model. Randy Newbrough from UITS Collaborative Technologies will conduct these sessions. Suitable for Instructors.
Migrating Oncourse sites to Canvas - Drop-in Session
This is a hands-on session designed to assist you with migrating your courses or course materials from Oncourse to Canvas.
Using VoiceThread to Engage Students
Use VoiceThread to communicate, collaborate, and connect with your students. VoiceThread can be used in Canvas as a tool for student discussion, narrating PowerPoints, or allowing students comment on your slides using microphone, webcam, text, phone, and audio-file upload. Upload, share and discuss documents, presentations, images, audio files and videos. Over 50 different types of media can be used in a VoiceThread.

Fully Online Sessions

MERLOT and Search Strategies for Online Materials
Looking for some new resources to enhance student learning in your course? MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching) provides descriptions and links to online learning resources including case studies, tutorials, animations, interactive multimedia, reference materials, quizzes/assessments, drills, and presentations suitable for higher education learning. Creative Commons, also introduced in this class, helps you find copyrighted media that come with some advance permissions for use. It is also suitable for faculty teaching hybrids or those looking for supplementary online materials for classroom courses. This training is delivered in Oncourse using web resources, is self-paced, and can start and end when convenient for your schedule. The class requires completing assignments using MERLOT and Creative Commons. This course counts for those earning their Basic Online Course Development Certificate. Register anytime for the MERLOT class and you will receive the instructions to get started. Suitable for instructors.
Online Course Strategies
Experience an online class in Canvas from a student perspective when you take this four-week workshop to guide you through course development for an online course. This course is required for those faculty earning their Basic Online Course Development Certificate. It is also useful for faculty planning or revising hybrid courses. Participants will work on a specific course, selected by them, during the workshop, making course level decisions and working on developing one module, or short segment, of the course. Weekly workshop assignments are due. This workshop does not result in a fully-developed online course but gets you started.  The workshop includes reading two books from the Jossey-Bass Guides to Online Teaching, which will be purchased for you. Past participants have estimated the class taking them about 3-7 hours per week.
Universal Design Guidelines
This workshop will focus on reasons why accessibility for students with disabilities is important, principles of Universal Design of Learning that can be used to result in a more inclusive online learning environment for all students, and practical tips on making instructional materials more accessible using common software (like Office).  The workshop is taught totally online in Canvas using web resources. Faculty will experience this Canvas experience from a student perspective. It is recommended for faculty who create/revise online or blended courses or are considering doing so. Faculty who use online resources or create instructional materials as supplementary learning as part of classroom courses can also benefit. This course is required for those earning their Basic Online Course Development Certificate.
