Flex Training Announced

Training on how to teach in Flex(FL) courses has just been announced. The training comes from the Center for Teaching and Learning, and empowers faculty to teach in the new Flex modality that utilizes Trimodal and Zoom+ classrooms.

Faculty can register for the training here.

Dates: Monday, June 14th through Friday, July 2nd

Format: Fully online (no in-person meetings)

Zoom Teaching Demos: Most coursework will be completed asynchronously, however, attendees should also plan to attend at least one teaching demonstration via Zoom. These demonstrations will be led by faculty who have experience teaching in Zoom-enabled classrooms, and training participants will assume the role of students for these activities. You can view a course schedule with demonstration times here.

Optional Kickoff and Wrap-up Zoom Meetings: Faculty interested in connecting with other training participants and discussing issues related to Flex instruction will have the option to attend informal Zoom meetings on Friday, June 18th and Thursday, July 1st from 3:00 to 4:00 pm Central Time.

Workload: Participants should expect to spend roughly three to four hours per week completing readings and assignments.

Dynamic Forms and REDCap

The university is utilizing two digital resources that may be of interesting to faculty and staff in the College of Business.

Dynamic Forms
A (relatively) simple way for non-technical users to convert paper-based forms into electronic forms. Currently, highly used by the College of Education here.

A “secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases.” More information can be found here.
