Join Dr. Gabrielle Orsi of the Office of Innovations in Teaching and Learning for this fully online training on the art of teaching. This training will be held via a Canvas course with a weekly web conference. Some of the weekly web conferences will feature a guest speaker. We will read and discuss together the book McKeachie’s Teaching Tips, 14th edition (2013). The book will be supplied to course participants. Course objectives include:

  • Building an online community with colleagues
  • Discussing new teaching tips and ideas from the text, each other, and the guest presenters
  • Reflecting upon our own teaching styles and what we would like to incorporate into our craft
  • Having an opportunity to sample various technologies used or mentioned in this course and consider using them in your own teaching

Total completion time is estimated to be approximately 20 hours. Please register for this training via WebAdvisor to obtain access to the Canvas course.

We suggest as well that you visit this webpage ahead of time to check your browser and ensure sure it’s ready for use with Blackboard Collaborate webconferencing. If you are not familiar with Blackboard Collaborate, then we suggest that you watch this 7-minute Participant Orientation tutorial video.

Canvas Draft State Webinar
Jul 11 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Learn more about working with the new Draft State feature in Canvas, which arrived for the Summer 2014 semester. Draft State allows an instructor to make Assignments, Quizzes, Modules, Pages, and Discussions invisible to students and exclude them from grade calculations. Draft State is designed specifically for instructors and affects nearly every part of a Canvas course. We will address:

  • how to work with Draft State as an instructor with Modules, Pages, Assignments, Discussions, and Quizzes
  • what happens when you combine “unpublished” and “published” items in a Canvas course
  • setting up your course’s homepage with Draft State
  • instructor’s perspective vs. student’s perspective: what students will and won’t see as you work with Draft State 
  • We’ll finish with open Canvas Q&A.

We will use a Colorado Mountain College “Meet Me” phone conference line 1803 for our audio and we’ll use this link for our meeting’s visual/screensharing component: https://join.me/cmcinnovations
