|OID announces On Teaching online|
This spring the Office of Instructional Development will pilot an online offering of the On Teaching seminars (informal discussions on teaching-related topics of interest to faculty in all disciplines) for those who teach distance courses at UND. The first seminar, "Significant Learning and Strategies of Student Engagement," will take place from 3 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 21. A full description of the session is available here: http://www.und.edu/dept/oid/Documents/Box_Lunch_Flier_21_Jan_2009_online.pdf . This interactive discussion will be conducted via WIMBA (and a tutorial for its use is available through Blackboard.) Participants will join the discussion remotely via computer and will need a USB headset to do so. To be fully interactive (with video) a USB webcam is recommended.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Jan. 19, to register. You will receive information about logging in to the seminar.
