2019 Lunch and Learn, and Work Smarter, Not Harder Sessions

Lunch and Learn: Discussion at High Noon

1) Into the Writing Lab: Getting Students Writing Early, Often and Effectively

This session focuses on how the Writing Lab can better serve you and your students.  Penny Long and Caley Ehnes will co-facilitate a presentation and discussion on the many aspects of planning, organizing and managing the writing process that contribute to a successful writing assignment.  Please join us to learn more about how your students—both international and domestic—might benefit from Writing Lab support and the proven strategies they employ.

2) Electronic Portfolios: Multimodal Curriculum and Learner-centered Engagement

This Lunch & Learn session will showcase ePortfolio use at The College of the Rockies and provide discussion/feedback regarding integration and use strategies.  This Winter Term four different instructors are currently integrating electronic portfolios into their courses.  Last term we successfully piloted two integrations in Nursing courses.  Come share in the stories of your colleagues Stephanie Obara, Dawn Storgaard, Jen Siemens, and their students regarding their own experiences.  We will show example ePortfolios, discuss assignments, and profile different uses.

Work Smarter, Not Harder

1) Activity Completion and Restrictions

This session covers the many ins and outs of using the activity completion and restrictions framework. These options allow you to structure your COTROnline course so that students have to complete an activity, assignment or reading before they can move onto the next.  Certain restrictions can also be placed on an activity, such as a passing mark or percentage on quizzes or assignments, before the activity is considered complete.  Susan Fleming, Pavel Santos and Scott Gerrity will co-facilitate a Show and Tell on this topic.

2) Using Groups and Grouping for Activities

This session will cover the many ins and outs of using groups and groupings for activities such as discussion forums, wikis, quizzes and lessons. These options allow you to create many different groups and types of groupings for specific assignments or engagements.  Susan Fleming, Pavel Santos and Scott Gerrity will co-facilitate a Show and Tell session on this topic.
