Timely Tech Trainings: Collaborate
Collaborate is Blackboard’s virtual learning environment for courses, office hours, or conference calls. With a variety of audio and video communication tools, faculty and learners easily can join a session from almost any device with a wireless connection. Learn how to share content, demo an application or collaborate in real-time. Faculty can also establish virtual breakout rooms for learners to engage in small groups.
Timely Tech Trainings: iCE (interactive Curricula Experience)
A web-based platform and iPad app, iCE delivers faculty-generated content directly to students’ iPads, laptops or desktops for a connected learning experience. Faculty wishing to learn more or to adopt this interactive technology for storing, sharing and organizing instructional content must attend one of the iCE workshops.
Timely Tech Trainings: NearPod
This session will explore NearPod, an Audience Response System that allows you to easily upload an existing PowerPoint presentation and add activities slides (polls, quizzes, drawings). The presenter dashboard is web-based and no special software needs to be installed.
Timely Tech Trainings: Blackboard Learn
Blackboard Learn is the course management system of the entire Jefferson campus. Explore the basic tools used to build a course in Blackboard Learn. This session is recommended for all faculty and organizational leaders new to Blackboard.
LabArchives Beginners Training Session
LabArchives Advanced Training Session
Peer Editing Research Manuscripts for Clarity
“Don’t worry about the content. Just tell me if it sounds right.” Sometimes colleagues ask you to evaluate the flow and language of their drafts. This session will give editors and writers specific strategies for editing paragraphs and sentences for the clearest possible meaning. You’ll also learn how to point writers to the right verb tense and how to trim sentences without trimming meaning.
LabArchives, Classroom Edition
Wouldn’t it be great if your lab notebook did all these things:
Improving Assessment with ExamSoft
ExamSoft is not just a secure delivery solution—it has the potential to improve teaching and learning exponentially! This workshop, which focuses on the feedback and analysis features of ExamSoft, is essential for item writers, course faculty, and administration.
Proofreading Research Manuscripts
Many writers feel anxiety about handing their manuscripts over to a judge, even if it’s just a peer. However, having someone else proofread and give a manuscript feedback increases the chance that it will get published. In our collaborative world, good peer editors should know how to respect the writer, build trust, and fix some errors. This session helps improve communication between the peer editor and the writer by defining inoffensive ways to give feedback. It also shares specific proofreading strategies for finding errors.
