Winter 2018

Advising/Curriculum Tools

Description:  My Degree Path and the Online Catalog are powerful tools when advising students and helping them from a Guided Pathway to degree completion. This training will go through these tools and how you can help students to utilize and understand these resources. There have been some changes to the look and function of the tool which we will review how these changes impact the various functions of My Degree Path so that you can talk to students about how to use all this new functionality.

Gamification of the Classroom

Description: Many students enjoy learning and reviewing course content by playing games. There are a lot of great resources you can find online that will help you develop and employ different games in your classrooms. Please join this learning circle to share your ideas for including games in your classrooms (both face-to-face or online). Even if you have never included games, this would also be a good place to learn more about it.
