Wondering how Collaborate can be useful in your course? Whether you are teaching in a traditional face to face classroom, blended learning, or online, Collaborate may be a useful tool for you. Join us on Feb. 27 from 2:30-4 in the Middleton Building rm. 302 to hear from your faculty colleagues how they use Collaborate as a solution to some of their needs. 

We will hear from Alan Carroll in the Dept. of Geoscience, Jennifer Gipson in the Dept. of French and Italian, and David Feldstein in the Department of Medicine as well as stories of others who have used Collaborate to address some pedagogical issues they faced. This session will focus on the problem instructors needed to solve, how they have used it, how they and their students feel about it, and what is working well and what they would like to change. There will be time for you to ask your questions and for participants to share experiences and concerns they have with the use of this tool.

We no longer need to get so worked up debating the merits of one LMS (Learning Management System) over the other, now that the “Learn@UW” label encompasses two major campus-supported LMSes: D2L and Moodle. But this new reality raises other issues and questions for ComETS members, such as:How do you wisely present these choices to faculty? How do we avoid LMS vs. LMS debates? Here is an opportunity for you to help the Learn@UW and Moodle service teams meet campus needs by learning and sharing with your peers and with service team members.

Presenters: Jeff Bohrer (Learn@UW Service Leader), Mike Litzkow (Moodle Support Team, Platform lead), Elizabeth Harris (Moodle Support Team)
