The Midterm Student Survey for Fall 2014
The CTE Teaching Excellence project is once again offering a Midterm Student Survey Service to all faculty members October 6-10, 2014. This year, we will also have an online survey for D2L! This service is available to faculty who wish to gather feedback from the students in their classes at midterm so they may have the opportunity to review the feedback and make adjustments during the second half of the semester. For more information, contact Sonia Toson (email@example.com)
New Training Workshop: Blackboard Collaborate
This ninety-minute, hands-on workshop provides the learner with the information necessary to begin using Blackboard Collaborate for online course delivery. This workshop will also include the pedagogical functions for improving faculty-to-student interaction, student-to-student interaction, and maintaining a synchronous connection with students on a regular basis. (Please note Blackboard is the replacement for Wimba and GoTo Meeting. Wimba and GoTo Meeting will not be available to faculty after December 2014.)
The training will be offered throughout the entire month of October with morning and evening options for faculty. Please check the CTE calendar on the website as well the Upcoming Events page on this blog site for more information.
