elementary-ed-latina-teaching1Are you interested in a teaching career? Colorado Mountain College is holding an information session for those interested in its elementary education bachelor’s degree program.

Information sessions are scheduled for the bachelor’s degree in elementary education program:

  • Tuesday, August 2, 5:30 p.m., Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs, Glenwood Center, 1402 Blake Avenue, Room 209
  • Thursday, August 4, 5:30 p.m., Colorado Mountain College in Edwards, 150 Miller Ranch Road, Room 204

The Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies: Elementary Education provides a pathway leading to dual licensure in Elementary Education and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) Education. There is currently a national teacher shortage and the CLD endorsement is in high demand. This dual endorsement prepares future teachers to be highly effective in working with children in our schools, as these children reflect the rich diversity of our beautiful mountain communities.

While the bachelor’s program is based at Colorado Mountain College locations in Glenwood Springs and Edwards, many classes at the associates level are available at most CMC campuses.

Bachelor of Arts: Elementary Education information meetings:

Providing Feedback Digitally @ CMC in Glenwood Springs, Room 106
Aug 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Want to give feedback to your students digitally, on any type of assignment? In this workshop, we will show you ways you can type, write, or give audio, video or screencast feedback to your students on various types of assignments (essays, photo or video projects, speeches, etc.) First we will look at 2 options you can use to provide written feedback on your students’ papers digitally:

  • GradeMark
  • Crocodoc

Both of these tools are already in your Canvas course. Students can upload their papers to your Canvas course assignment, you provide feedback digitally online, and students can view your feedback there. In your feedback, you can even provide clickable links to grammar tips or other websites. We will also show how a Wacom Slate or other brand of stylus allows you to add your own handwriting (instead of typing) onto your students’ digital papers. 2. Then we will then look at ways you can provide audio or video or screencast feedback to students on various types of assignments (essays, photo or video projects, live or recorded speeches…) using one of these options:

  • Canvas media recorder for creating audio or video feedback
  • Jing or Camtasia or QuickTime (Mac) for creating screencast feedback
  • WebEx webinars for live one-on-one feedback or WebEx recordings for creating audio, video or screencast feedback.

This workshop is part of the Roaring Fork in-service event.

  • Use your WebEx home page in Basecamp to view sessions, settings and recordings

We will also teach you the basics of how to present a WebEx session:
