Guided Explorations

Guided Explorations

In these workshop series, faculty are introduced to a new pedagogical approach or to a complex tool that could potentially fill many pedagogical needs. Faculty explore scenarios in which this tool or approach might be used and begin to apply these ideas to their own teaching. Topics have included hybrid course design, ePortfolio pedagogy, and strategies for teaching with online meeting tools. Many of these series are co-facilitated by an educational technologist and a faculty member.

Guided Explorations
Week-Zero Camp
Presenter(s): Multiple Presenters

In this adaptation of module-making camp, participants will build an orientation or welcome module for their students. With these “week-zero” materials and activities, students can learn course information or begin to introduce themselves to each other and the instructor before the first day of class. This allows the instructor to begin the first day of class with a focus on course content and helps students better understand the goals and structure of the course. The camp is 2.5 days long and includes time for individualized support and for hands-on work with tools such as VoiceThread and Padlet and skills such as preparing students for hybrid/online courses, recording a welcome video, designing ice-break activities and creating plans to communicate and interact with students. At the end of the camp, participants will be required to create and present the materials and activities in the week-zero module for an online course that they may teach in the future. Participants who attend all sessions and build a module will receive a stipend. [Details...]
