Digital Pedagogy Workshop

collaboratory gathering

The goal of the Digital Pedagogy Workshop is to help you develop an online or hybrid course rich with student engagement techniques based in best practices in pedagogical research.  From applying the Understanding by Design framework to your course to exploring ways to meaningfully engage your online learners to reviewing federal and institutional policies about online learning, we will engage in work that is challenging, meaningful, and rewarding.  This workshop is offered annually, but we are hoping to expand our offerings in the future. 


Here are a few of the concepts and ideas we have discussed in past workshops:

  • Design course activities that promote the achievement of the stated learning objectives, provide opportunities for interaction that support active learning; and integrate technology into the course design in ways that support student engagement.

  • Design assessments that measure stated learning objectives and are consistent with course activities and resources

  • Learn strategies that will help you to facilitate interactive synchronous virtual class meetings.

  • Expand the ways of using our learning management system (Moodle) to enhance communication, collaboration, sharing of content, and use of  multimedia resources.
  • Learn about Understanding by Design for Learning and its implications for online and hybrid course development.
  • Learn the benefits of producing and integrating digitally recorded presentations in your teaching
  • And so much more!

We will have a few sample itineraries from previous workshops, and will post when the next workshop will be when we have the exact dates!
