This First Year Seminar instructor workshop will focus on several pedagogical techniques that many who teach the First Year Seminar course have found successful. We will share handouts and talk about what seems to fit well with various topics in the course.
This workshop will be helpful for those who will be teaching the course for the first time, for those who are thinking about teaching the course, and even for those who have taught the course before and would like to share techniques.

Presented by Wendy Palmquist, Coordinator, First Year Seminar
“The question” is the topic used to develop the critical thinking skills that are the core of the course. We will talk about how to incorporate your question into the course and how to use it to teach the skills. We will also talk about how to phrase the course “blurb” used to describe it to the new students. Instructors who have taught before are very welcome. The topics are always varied, and a lot of fun to hear about!

Building a Moodle quiz is a complex process. Naturally we think of just building questions and releasing it to students, but there is a lot more to the process. There are several options and organizational issues that can harm your quiz before it reaches your students. Join this session as Justin covers the basics of Moodle quiz-building.
Collaborate is a web conferencing tool that will be integrated in our Moodle platform.
