ITT Summer Seminars and Workshops

The Innovation in Teaching and Technology initiative will be offering a series of seminars and workshops this summer, all on the topic of online teaching. Based on faculty time preferences, these will be held on various Thursdays at 1:00 pm throughout the summer.

The first seminar – “Anatomy of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)” – will be held on Thursday, June 20, at 1:00 pm. (The room location is still pending, so that will be announced soon.)

Here is the tentative list of the remaining topics to be included in this summer series:

Online Teaching: How to Create a Welcome Video
Online Teaching: Creating Kahn Academy-Like Videos with Camtasia
Online Teaching: Creating Narrated PowerPoints with Camtasia
Meeting Basic Accessibility Standards: Creating Captions for Videos

These topics were chosen to mirror the design and development work that Lloyd is doing right now as he prepares to offer his first MOOC. It’ll be a short one, about 4 weeks in length, with the title “Statistics in Education for Mere Mortals.” It will be offered by a company called Instructure using their learning management system called Canvas. The starting date of the MOOC is August 5, 2013. Lloyd will share and talk about his many design decisions and development tasks as they unfold this summer.

If you have not yet completed the two minute survey to indicate your interest in this series, please go ahead and do so:

A benefit of completing the survey is that up-to-date information will be emailed directly to you.
