Warm Up with Some Faculty Development!

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you all are staying warm 🙂

Here are a few faculty development opportunities to help keep you warm during the next few weeks:

  • The next “Friday Coffee Fix” will be Feb. 15th – 11am-3pm (drop in anytime!): All about Rubrics! The D2L rubric tool has been updated and is easier than ever to use, and for students to view. Streamline your grading AND provide more robust feedback for students. Come learn how! Videos and handouts will also be provided. Can’t make it or don’t want to wait? Contact Kathleen for more info.
  • There are quite a few Minnesota Online Quality Initiative (MOQI) workshops this spring, with both online and face to face sessions on ways to improve your online and blended teaching. Check out this flyer for more information!
  • Two 1-hour Quality Matters workshops will be held this week at St. Cloud State University.  Dr. Kate Mooney, Accounting Professor, Herberger Business School will outline the requirements for earning the Online Teaching Certificate, a seven course program from Quality Matters. These workshops will be held Wednesday, January 30 from 3-3:50 pm in Centennial Hall 106 OR Thursday, January 31 from 12:30 – 1:30 pm in Centennial Hall 106.  If you cannot join us in Centennial Hall, please plan to attend online at https://webmeeting.minnstate.edu/t4tlworkshops.
  • Fun with Curriculum Maps! Curriculum Maps help make the connection between how the courses in your department contribute to your overall Program Learning Outcomes (along with their connections to the broader Core Learning Outcomes of the college). Do you need help either revising your Curriculum Maps, or just making sense out of the ones you already have? Stop by the Center for Teaching and Learning (L1735) next week during any of the following drop-in hours:
    Tuesday Feb 5th: 10am – noon
    Wednesday Feb 6th: 2-4pm
    Thursday Feb 7th: 12-2pm
  • Last but not least, if you were thinking of submitting a proposal for this year’s D2L conference (held at Normandale!), the deadline is this Friday.

Stay warm, everyone!
