Digital Teaching Summer Camp

Sessions begin today!

Dear Colleagues,

It’s summer time and the living is easy! Or, more like, it’s summer term and we’re all wondering what our teaching should look like now in the time of a pandemic and off-site instruction. Learning Technology and Innovations has developed a workshop series we’re calling Digital Teaching Summer Camp to help get you through this summer and plan for a fall unlike any other.

• learn how to plan flexible courses that can respond to quickly-changing modes of instruction

• learn how to make better screencasts and more accessible video content

• learn about academic integrity when students are learning remotely

You can opt to take as few or as many sessions as you like. When you attend a session, you’ll earn a virtual badge (it’s summer camp, after all!) in your Moodle shell that will give you a lasting record of the skills you learned, perfect for listing on APARs and PRCs. And if you take eight one-hour offerings over the next two months, you’ll earn a Certificate in Digital Competency from LTI that recognizes your skills, preparedness, and hard work.

Sessions kick off today! No registration required—to join us, visit the Support for Alternate Delivery Moodle Shell and check out the tab labelled Summer Camp! Sessions are delivered via Big Blue Button. (If you don’t have access to this Moodle course, you can self-enrol with key COVID19, or email moodlesupport@tru.ca). 

You can find the full schedule below. We look forward to camping with you! 

Best,

Brenna Clarke Gray
