Course Architecture: Good planning makes for a good course. This workshop walks you through the process of scheduling assignments, planning your workload, and creating course navigation that isn’t confusing for your students.
If you find Copyright a little confusing, this session will help you understand what your rights as an educator are. We’ll cover Fair Use principles, Creative Commons licensing and provide you with helpful tools to determine whether you’re stepping on anyone’s toes.
Teaching can be messy. Learning can be even messier. We have some strategic ways of defining activities, determining assessment, and evaluating the success of that assignment.
Screencasting and Video Creation: Written lecture notes can be dull. Keep your students engaged with high quality video lectures and screencasting. We offer two sessions during iTeach full of hands-on instruction.
Badging and Gamification: Some employers are increasingly looking at observable skill sets rather than courses completed and the grades earned for those courses. We will delve into some of the details of best practices and current trends.
Big Ideas in the Classroom: We love teaching you how to use new web tools to create exciting learning experiences for your students, but all your students’ activities should lead your students to discover the central thesis of your course.
