Preparation for Third Meeting

  1. Continue to add ideas to the Padlet document (url will be emailed after the workshop) we created during the workshop today. Use this as an opportunity to brainstorm all the areas in which you would like to get more information/assistance with developing your understanding of online teaching.
  2. Use the v-t-a approach to develop 2-4 new activity ideas for your course. Push yourself to think about how your ideas are linked to your core teaching values, and use this as an opportunity to familiarize yourself with 1 or 2 NEW technologies. Make sure you input your ideas in the new V-T-A tool we developed today (url will be emailed after the workshop).
