Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 10 AM CST

A University of Ottawa professor reveals his secrets to getting 99% class participation and improving learning outcomes in the process.

When Dr. Colin Montpetit, Assistant Professor of Science Education, decided to incorporate a student engagement solution into his large enrollment class with 3 sections of 200 students in each, the results were nothing short of remarkable. In his own words, his course became an “active learning zone” as student participation and classroom interaction soared.

Join Dr. Montpetit for this complimentary Webinar to hear his personal experience, research findings and tried and true teaching tips on:

How to make the most of student engagement systems and student devices.
Why increased student participation and engagement translates into student success.
How adding interactive questions to your digital presentations gives you real-time insight into student comprehension.

Who Should Attend: All Faculty especially those interested in using lecture capture software, and those that are interested in using technology to teach are highly encouraged to attend.

Students: Winter Blackboard Upgrade Coming at End of December

On December 30th 12:01 AM CST through January 1st, MATC’s Blackboard Learning Management System will be unavailable to faculty and students so that a maintenance upgrade can be performed. Blackboard will become available again on January 2nd (unless otherwise communicated).

  JTERM STUDENTS
We apologize for the disruption of Blackboard availability during JTerm.  When planning for the annual upgrade, this was the best time based on contract and services.

  WHAT WILL BE DIFFERENT?
The routine maintenance will update security features, correct known issues, and add requested enhancements to improve teaching and learning online. Although the way Blackboard looks and how you will use its tools will not change, there will be a few slight enhancements to tools you commonly use:

  WHERE CAN I GO TO LEARN MORE ABOUT USING BLACKBOARD?
Students are encouraged to attend a Live Blackboard Orientation Session at their nearest campus or view the Online Blackboard Orientation at the beginning of the semester to review basic Blackboard navigation and how to use the Assignment, Test, and Discussion tools.

If you have questions, please use the Student Support Contact Us form.
