Presenter: Vanessa Steele

Develop effective strategies for building an approachable online presence that helps you develop warm, respectful relationships with your students in the online learning environment.

April 2, noon: Session 1: Building rapport with your students

Students perform better, retain information longer, and are more successful when they have people who see their potential and believe in them. Going online removes the ability to see our students in-person, but it does not strip away our ability to connect with them. In this workshop, we'll explore how you can build rapport with your students in fully asynchronous online courses. 

April 9, noon: Session 2: Facilitating relationships among peers

In this follow-up session to Building Rapport with Your Students, we'll discuss how to utilize the collective knowledge and experiences of your students to aid in learning and comprehension. We'll look at tips for facilitating relationships among peers online and how to get buy-in from reluctant students, as well as some tools and strategies for conquering the dreaded discussion boards and getting students engaged in group learning.  

PD INSTITUTES

Professional development Institutes are a new offering from CETI. Our vision is that we will engage faculty through a process of development that spans aspects of teaching in-person, hybrid and online. Our institutes will all have limited seating, be available in-person and online. Some of the institutes will be prerequisites for others. We will begin by offering 2-3 per semester including 1-2 over the summer. For each institute completed, educators are eligible for a $500 stipend. If interested, faculty may apply for a $1000 stipend after completing Guided Course Development and submitting a redeveloped/newly developed course for review and peer observation of the course being taught.

Mastering Teaching Technology

This workshop explores utilizing digital learning tools to enrich teaching and optimize student outcomes. Whether you teach online, in-person, or in a hybrid format, integrating select technologies can enhance learner engagement and streamline course delivery and grading.

In this hands-on Institute, you will gain skills to:

  • Effectively leverage teaching technologies to boost teaching and learning
  • Connect student learning objectives to assessments
  • Apply learning analytics to adapt teaching practices and improve student outcomes
  • Streamline course shell setup and updates across semesters
  • Evaluate potential learning tools to ensure they meet student needs and teaching standards
  • Create engaging digital learning activities to increase student participation

By spending time evaluating, integrating, and implementing digital resources, you can transform your instructional environment. This workshop provides practical strategies to determine which technologies make sense for your courses and how to successfully incorporate them. Join us and add new digital teaching tools to your repertoire.
