Spring ’21 Kick-Off with CCIT and Clemson Online

January 14, 2021

Clemson Online and CCIT kicked off the start of Spring semester ’21 with in-person sessions at the Cooper Library on January 4 and 5. Each session began on the hour with a 20 minute talk about best practices for blended learning, followed by classroom tours so faculty could practice with in-classroom technologies.

The Hybrid/Blended best practices workshops were led by Dr. Lori Kinley from Clemson Online. Topics covered included:

  • Identifying Clemson-supported tools
  • Using Canvas for organizing materials, including Zoom lectures/recordings
  • Effective class communication
  • Providing detailed instructions
  • Creating meaningful engagement with learners
  • Making yourself available and present online

Following the workshops, instructors were escorted to their upcoming classroom spaces to learn about the in-class technology available and to practice using it. Over 70 instructors participated in these tours led by Clemson Online and CCIT.
