Faculty Development Workshops 2018

Faculty development training workshops are offered weekly on a scheduled basis or as needed.  These sessions are also not a series of sessions that you must attend.  For example, you only need to attend the intro session once regardless of the week or day you chose to attend.  A reservation is needed to attend a workshop.

When Should I attend? It is recommended that you attend ASAP to make sure that you have time to become comfortable with the new system.

How do I attend? Please contact Jacob Mills, MSE by email (millsj@hsu.edu) to reserve a seat. Since some setup is involved for each session, you must RSVP.

Where do we meet? The response to your reservation will include the on-campus location of the session.

Questions? Please contact Jacob Mills, MSE (millsj@hsu.edu or 870.230.5846) with any questions.

Migration Workshop - An open workshop for faculty to drop in and work on their migration from Bb Learn to Canvas or to ask questions while working within Canvas.  It is strongly recommended to RSVP to guarantee that there is a computer available.  All participants MUST have attended the Canvas Intro before attending.

Course instructional design and customization - A personalized session where the professor and instructional designer meet to discuss best practices and take steps to customize the Bb Learn course(s) to achieve the professor’s visualized plans and goals.  The session content and length varies based on the goals and needs of the professor.  Contact Jacob Mills, MSE, Instructional Technology Designer at millsj@hsu.edu
