University Libraries Faculty Development
PRESTO - Preparing Researchers, Educators, and Scholars for Online Teaching
A 5-module robust self-paced course on CANVAS to learn how to create an online course using CANVAS as the platform for delivery. Estimated to be about 50 hours of content. Register here.
A 5-week class one can sign up for (one starts May 14 and another July 8, limited registration) that has synchronous 1-hour per week meetings (ex. 2-3 on Tuesdays) to guide you in quickly transitioning to online delivery.
ATL Course Makeover Workshop
While not a technical training session in online tools (check out the offerings from Online Teaching and Learning Services), this workshop will prepare faculty to “translate” learning activities to multiple learning environments. For example, what are the objectives of traditional classroom discussions? And how can online tools like chat, discussion forums, or video conferencing help us meet those objectives? May 20-22, register here.
1-hour courses taught by our University Libraries staff, for example: “LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor"
