The Teaching Pedagogy offerings are intended to assist instructors teaching in varying modes, whether in a fully online, blended, or face-to-face course. The workshops listed below offer a variety of topics in the areas of teaching with technology, assessement, course evaluation, and Ignatian pedagogy.
While these workshops are self-paced, staff in the Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy are happy to meet with individuals in need of one-on-one assistance in any of these areas. For questions or comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Active Learning Strategies for Online Content (Late Fall 2013)
With so many online distractions, it's difficult to know if a student is staying engaged with materials placed online in an online or blended course. This workshop will cover strategies that can be used to keep students active and engaged with online materials. Some advanced features of Articulate Presenter, Adobe Presenter, Camtasia, and Adobe Connect will be presented, including how to embed interactive quizzes, polls, and content to promote active learning. It is strongly recommended that participants attend the Presenting Materials Online workshop prior to attending this workshop, as we will not have time to cover the basics of each of the tools during this workshop.
