Presented by staff members from Rutgers Division of Continuing Studies
Session A: Intro to Online Teaching - Joseph Yankus, Senior Instructional Designer
Interested in teaching your first online course but don’t quite know where to begin? This introductory workshop identifies the most important pedagogical considerations you’ll need to get started teaching online, including the unique needs of online students and characteristics of a successful online course. Tools to address these needs will also be briefly highlighted.
Session B: Creating Accessible Content- Images, Documents, and Videos - Natalia Kouraeva
Join us for an exploration of how to take a few easy steps that will make your course more accessible. We will discuss and demonstrate how to create accessible documents (Word/PDF), add an alternative text to images, and provide captions and transcripts for videos. We’ll also review key accessibility features in the Canvas LMS.
Session C: Alternate Assessment: Beyond Exams - Karen Harris, Instructional Designer
You’re teaching fully online now, but have you considered how you will assess the learning? If you usually depend on high-stakes exams, but would rather not dive into online proctoring, now may be the time to brainstorm some new summative options that offer more varied opportunities for your students to demonstrate how well they have achieved the course learning objectives!
