Having escaped the Ides of March, would you care to consider the cornucopia of teaching goodness below?. . .
Center for Teaching and Learning Events
Faculty have generously volunteered to host a variety of roundtables, trainings, and workshops in the next month. The calendar to the right shows all the dates and times: please join us.
You can now set an Intelligent Agent in D2L to do something if a student did not. Previously, intelligent agents would only act if a student did something (submitted a quiz, file to dropbox). Now, you can tell it to email or text students if they haven’t done something. Small feature- potential huge impact. See David Voigt or Sue Tischendorf for more information.
