Online teaching presents its own opportunities and challenges. Join us in exploring how to create community, support student engagement, and assess student learning in the online context using CourseWorks, Columbia’s learning management system. This workshop will give you an overview of the CourseWorks interface and highlight a toolset that will allow you to set up a course with clear expectations for students, create opportunities for a variety of assignment engagements, and nurture an environment that encourages a culture of inclusive communication.
Please note that this session takes place via Zoom and is not a Zoom training session. Before you attend this session, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with Zoom. You can access CUIT’s Zoom training sessions on their Zoom training page.
By the end of the session, participants should be able to:
Determine which CourseWorks tools will meet the teaching and learning goals of their course(s).
Intentionally integrate CourseWorks into their courses.
