Upcoming Drop-in Sessions

CTLR Byte-size workshops: Online Learning from Design to Delivery

Based on interactions with VCC departments and faculty, the CTLR team has identified common challenges in the practice of online or blended teaching. We have designed this workshop series to support the VCC teaching community in its continuing efforts to provide quality education that meets the needs and competencies of our programs and students.

This series of workshops shares current practices for online teaching, from design to delivery. The focus is on both the pedagogy of online learning and the technology to support that learning.

These sessions will be practical, informative, and interactive, providing participants with skills to apply in their online teaching practice.
