eLearning Workshops

Using Technology to Facilitate Student Engagement

This one day intensive workshop is designed to help colleagues who are interested in eLearning but have limited experience to start integrating technologies in teaching. This workshop introduces technical tools that faculty members can take advantage of in various ways to promote student engagement in various modes of eLearning delivery.

This is a hands-on workshop that you will learn, try out and practice using various eLearning tools. We will also discuss and share various ways that these tools could be used to promote students engagement online.  Faculty or staff who need to plan or build elearning elements or courses will find this useful. No prior experience required! Please kindly note that  lunch is NOT provided for this workshop.

Note: you might be asked to bring your own laptop, mobile phone, headset, flash-drive, and other devices for this workshop depending on the number of participants and the technical tools. You will receive emails from your facilitator in advance if these devices are required.
