ZERD 094: Technology Tool Shop I (1c)

The college has an incredible inventory of innovative technologies to enhance teaching and learning, but it is difficult for faculty to find the time to explore these technologies and implement into curriculum. This workshop helps bridge that gap. Participants will design their own curriculum specific project using technology of their choice. This will be accomplished with the assistance and guidance of “technology mentors”. Participants will also review pedagogical best practices for instruction with new technologies. This FQAS course can be completed for “renewal” credit.

ZERD 012: Technology Tool Shop II

This advanced technology course will scaffold from the concepts explored in Technology Tool Shop I.  Participants will continue to build upon their curriculum-specific project or choose a new project to explore, using technology of their choice.  This will be accomplished with the assistance and guidance of “technology mentors”. Participants will also review pedagogical best practices for instruction with new technologies.

Blackboard Clean-Up: Archive Last Spring’s Courses Before April 7th

 

Please download an archive and Grade Center file from each spring 2016 course you taught before they are permanently deleted from Blackboard on Friday April 7th at 8:00 AM (Central).

Remember, courses that were offered in the spring of 2016 will have Blackboard IDs that begin with SP2016.

Best Practices for Saving Courses

If you do not have a “master copy” of your course permanently stored on the Blackboard system,  please complete the Personal Master request form and import your archived course file into it for future use and revision.

Warning

Due to changes in username formats, hosting servers, and service packs, requests for old course archives may be time-consuming and restorations may be unsuccessful. Downloading an archive of your course and grade data NOW ensures that you will have easy access to them LATER!
