There was discussion about an event during the fall 2019 semester for faculty to showcase their online courses and/or to learn about online courses. We brainstormed about what would be of greatest interest to faculty. Some ideas were:
- a speaker from a community college
- a presentation including data about online course success statistics
- what skills should we be incorporating into online courses that address future employment opportunities for our students.
- a practical, “how to” piece
We also reviewed a sheet on technology tools that can be used with our classes. The sheet was developed for the composition faculty. Some of the tools we tested included hypothes.is (for annotation) and Microsoft Office 365 Teams for collaboration on a single document.
