Learning Technologists Available for Course Consultations this Summer!

Have some ideas about how Google Apps might boost engagement in your course?
Are you looking to revise an assignment, a topic or unit, or even the whole course to fine tune the learning environment?

We would love to help!

Learning Technologists (Ben Casto and Jennifer Wright) are available throughout the summer to consult about any and all technology issues related to course development and revision.  We understand that the week before school starts is a busy time for everyone, and that planning and revision of courses is a process in which faculty engage in advance, so we are offering the opportunity to meet as you are planning and revising your courses in order to make efficient and productive use of your time.

Some suggestions for possible ways we can assist you in preparing your courses include:

  • Learning and setting up web-based tools (Google Apps, SafeAssign, Blackboard gradebook, journals, or blogs, etc.) to make the administration of your course more efficient
  • Incorporating digital tools to support group work, organization, and collaboration in course assignments
  • Best practices for setting up assignments, tests, and quizzes for your students using online tools
  • Efficient and effective course layouts in Blackboard
  • Creation of a Google Site for course or SMP support
  • Tools for student feedback in formative and summative assessment

If any of these topics spark an idea that you would like to discuss, feel free to fill out the form below, and we will contact you to set up a time to meet.  Not on Campus much this summer? That’s ok! We can work by Google Hangout (and its awesome ability to share a computer screen while talking), phone, or plain old email if that is what works for you.

Don’t know where to start? We can help with that too.  Just let us know about something in your course that you would like to improve and we can brainstorm along with you for ways to boost engagement and efficiency that work with the way that you want to teach.
