Flex Fridays: July, August, and September

Flex Fridays

Flex Fridays are an opportunity for faculty and staff to experiment with the new technologies in the Trimodal classrooms. These sessions will run Fridays from 10AM to Noon and 2PM to 4PM in DPC 5901 (we are normally done in the first hour, but the extra time is scheduled for additional practice). Faculty and staff can come to the classroom and physically test out the equipment or remotely connect via Zoom and see what the experience is like for remote students and guest presenters (physically visiting the classroom and testing and practicing is highly recommended). Investing time now will pay dividends later in the year. Faculty and staff can attend multiple sessions – they just need to register here:

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.
