January 9 – February 2, 2023

Join us for “Innovative Teaching Strategies” where we explore UD supported technologies and methods for teaching – specifically, instructor presence, student engagement, assessments, and multimedia. Learn to apply these innovative instructional strategies regardless of whether you’re teaching fully online, in person, or some combination of formats. During this 4-week course, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with ATS instructional designers, other instructors, and guest speakers who will share current practices both asynchronously and synchronously.

Week 4: Multimedia & Library Resources


Course format

This course is a hybrid format with asynchronous content available in Canvas and a synchronous Zoom session each Thursday at 1:30 PM. During synchronous Zoom sessions, ATS instructional designers, class participants, and guest speakers will delve deeper into best practices.

Tools we’ll be modeling

Poll Everywhere, FeedbackFruits, Perusall, UD Capture, advanced Canvas and Zoom features and more. Tools will be modeled and briefly introduced with individual consultations available by request.
