Using VoiceThread to Add Your Voice to Your Online Course

This session follows up on the Oct. 27th session for online faculty on “Bringing Faculty Expertise and Experience into the Online Classroom.” In that session, VoiceThread will be presented as an option for faculty to add their voice to their online classes. You do not have to attend the Oct. 27th session to attend this one.

This tech session on VoiceThread will spotlight how to navigate the VoiceThread platform, upload media to a presentation, and link the finished project back to ulearn in an announcement, content area, or discussion. We will also showcase how to add voice or text comments to a presentation as a method to give feedback.

The webinar session will be held via Zoom. A link will be sent to faculty who sign up by Nov. 1st. To register, sign up at https://goo.gl/forms/WyNLGI16KKcotGbz2.

Bringing Faculty Experience and Expertise into the Online Classroom

This year, the College of Online Education is asking all faculty to share more of their rich experience and expertise with students. But what does that actually look like in practice? And what might it look like in your online course? 

This hour-long session will:

  • Explore what research—and feedback from COE students—tells us about the value of online teaching practices that draw on faculty members’ unique expertise and experiences in their fields
  • Recommend light-touch strategies for sharing your own background and experience through announcements, discussion forums, and other tools that are already part of your online teaching toolkit
  • Suggest innovative uses of technology such as VoiceThread and Turnitin to literally share your voice with students
  • Highlight COE faculty who have adopted model practices

This session will be held online via Zoom. A link to the meeting will be sent to registered faculty a few days prior to the meeting. To register for the session, please use the following link to enter your name and email address by October 25th:

Using Rubrics to Grade More Efficiently and Effectively

Many instructors have found that using rubrics helps them evaluate student work much more efficiently, effectively, and consistently. Spending a few minutes creating a rubric upfront can pay off in several ways down the road. During this hour-long session, we will explore how rubrics can:

  • address challenges commonly associated with grading
  • support student learning and improve the quality of students’ work
  • inform your ongoing professional development as a teacher
  • capture your expectations for student performance and align with your teaching philosophy
  • be built in ulearn and used to evaluate student work

 

We welcome you to join our conversation. Hearing your questions and learning from your experiences will enrich the session for all of us.

This session will be held online via Zoom. A link to the meeting will be sent to registered faculty a few days prior to the meeting. To register for the session, please use the following link to enter your name and email address:
