This month, we are focusing on support: learner support, and support for you! Supporting your learners’ mastery of course material comes in many forms. One of the best means of supporting them is providing a concrete model of expectations they can follow when they are delivering an assignment. Check out our blog post from April to learn about how to best use rubrics to support your learners. After that, you should check out the brief Quick Hits video on how to make rubrics in Canvas at the bottom of that post, or you can view it here.
Quick Hits: Getting Started with Accessibility – This Quick Hits session is for faculty who are interested in beginning to make accessibility improvements to their courses. In 20 minutes, you will learn what accessibility means and how to start designing accessible content with the help of accessibility checkers. We will also briefly cover Canvas’ accessibility features, extending time on exams, and support options available at Clemson. Facilitated by Michelle Tuten, Accessibility Coordinator with Clemson Online, who brings eight years of digital accessibility experience. Pronouns: she/her/hers
Workshop Wednesday: Avoiding Burnout Using Course Design – This Workshop Wednesday focuses on specific and actionable course design strategies that can help faculty avoid becoming overwhelmed and thus leading to burnout. Instead of focusing solely on personal strategies for dealing with chronic stress, this workshop delves into specific teaching strategies and course design steps faculty can use to make their teaching work for them and their students. This workshop is for anyone teaching who is using online learning tools such as Canvas to supplement their course, as well as those teaching classes that are solely online. Facilitated by James Butler, Digital Learning Strategist.
