Have you ever thought about how online components might complement your face-to-face course? myCourses allows instructors to post files, accept assignment submissions, incorporate multimedia from popular websites like YouTube, and more! If you would like to explore more about how to make myCourses work for you, consider attending our “Getting Started in myCourses” workshop tomorrow.

For those who were interested but could not make it, check out our recording of the “Streamline Grading Using Rubrics” lunch and learn session from last Thursday.

Explore new ways of teaching and grading by attending a workshop this week from Instructional Development.

This Wednesday the Blended Learning: Finding the Mix online workshop begins. In blended classes a portion of the traditional face-to-face instruction is replaced by web-based online learning. This two-week workshop provides a comprehensive look at how a unit of face-to-face instruction could be delivered in the blended format.

Also, consider joining us for lunch on Thursday afternoon to learn about grading with rubrics. Rubrics make the process of grading more efficient for instructors as well as making assignment expectations clearer to students. A light lunch will be served for registered attendees.
