It might be chilly outside, but the learning is alive and well at the Learning Technology Center! Join us for a workshop, discussion group, or a one-on-one consultation about how to more deeply integrate technology in your office or classes.
This month, we kickstart a series of workshops and presentations around the themes of flipped classrooms where students engage in active learning opportunities before coming to class to more deeply apply learning.
- Flipped Learning Fundamentals – examine the fundamentals of flipped learning to design your course in a hybrid manner to support the flipped classroom, apply active learning techniques, and discuss methods to engage students.
- Adaptive Learning Community of Practice – Join the LTC as we re-explore adaptive learning strategies through the use of Realizeit and launch and new Community of Practice!
- Universal Design for Learning – Explore the principles of UDL that offer students multiple means of engagement with course materials, representations of their understanding, and meaningful action and expression based on their learning.
EDUCAUSE Top 10 IT Issues in Higher Education
On February 3, 2022 we “Set Sail” in a long-term study and discussion of the EDUCAUSE Top 10 Issues in Higher Education. Every two weeks, we will gather to discuss various challenges our campus faces and whether advances in information technology can offer any pathways forward. Some speakers in this series include CIO Elena Pokot (ICIT) and Dean Frank Goza (College of Letters and Science)!

Improving the student experience is the focus of quite a few workshops this month:
- Improving Course Navigation
- Canvas Open Lab
- Better Courses Through Better Pages (also available on-demand)
- What Students Want in Canvas (previous session recording available)
We offer several opportunities to have your gradebook set up, get a check-up on any quizzes you are offering, and to discover options within Canvas to grade more efficiently and with meaningful feedback for all students.
Whether you’re new to campus or just want to develop stronger skills and abilities with campus technology, we’re here to help. Numerous opportunities are available each month that present new features and suggestions for best use:
