Teaching & Learning Workshops

These are the workshops we currently have planned, through August 4, 2020. They are open to faculty, staff, and graduate students. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at facultycenter@luc.edu.



Currently Scheduled Workshops

OOL & FCIP have collaborated to develop and offer a targeted workshop on recommended instructional approaches and best practices for managing and teaching large online classes (over 30 students). The workshop will cover ways to engage students both synchronously (using ZOOM) and asynchronously (using Sakai). Topics include using polling, breakout rooms, groups, peer assessment, automated grading options, and discussion strategies. All sessions are open to all interested faculty.

LUC faculty and students quickly and successfully pivoted from face to face to remote learning at mid-Spring semester.  But what is it like to teach remotely, from day 1, to a class of completely new students?  Join FCIP and faculty colleagues from the School of Nursing to hear their experience teaching remotely and synchronously from the beginning to the end of their twelve-week Summer semester.  The presentation will include topics such as establishing a relationship via Zoom with a new, and not yet familiar, group of students; academic integrity; the “flipped classroom”; handling distractions; and being prepared for the unexpected.
