Have some time in between grading finals and preparing for your summer break? Join the CIT for our annual series of May Workshops to get teaching ideas and learn about new technologies you can use in your classes this Fall.
Find out what the buzz is about with massive open online courses (MOOCs) with our session “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About MOOCs.” Help your students learn more by “flipping” your classroom and get ideas for writing better multiple choice questions. We have sessions on how you and your students can use multimedia in presentations and assignments as well as workshops on the Sakai upgrade, Sakai’s Piazza discussion tool, and using assignments, assessment and the grade book in Sakai.
See our website for a a full schedule of the workshops, running May 2nd through May 14th.
