Teaching with Webex Teams Bootcamp in July

As you begin thinking about the fall, are you looking for ways to facilitate communication and collaboration with your students? You might be interested in the Learning Technology Center’s (LTC) “Teaching with Webex Teams Bootcamp!”

The bootcamp will take place in McGraw 19A on a series of Monday mornings this July (7/16, 7/23, 7/30) from 10:00 am to 10:45 am. Please see the video below for a reflection from a UW-Whitewater instructor who used Webex Teams (when it was called “Spark” in the Fall 2018 semester).

All faculty and instructional staff are welcome to attend the “Teaching with Webex Teams Bootcamp.” Registration is recommended, but walk-ins are also welcome. UW-Whitewater has a campus license for Webex Teams, so feel free to bring your computer or mobile device to the bootcamp sessions and log into Webex Teams.
