On-Campus Event Descriptions [Workshops, Presentations, Teaching Bites, and Faculty Special Interest Groups]

Applying the QM Rubric Workshop

The workshop should appeal to novices and more seasoned faculty alike who are looking for assistance with designing a quality online course or those who may be interested in becoming Peer Reviewers. Throughout the workshop emphasis is placed on the QM Program being an open, collegial, colaborative, continuous, and centered approach to quality course design.

The standards are created by faculty for faculty. QM strives to assist faculty in going beyond "good enough" in their course design. At the completion of this workshop, you should be able to:

  • Identify the underlying principles of QM. 
  • Identify the critical elements of the QM quality assurance program, including the QM Rubric materials, processes, and administrative components. 
  • Apply the QM Rubric to review online courses.
  • Make decisions on whether the demo course meets selected QM Rubric standards. 
  • Apply the concept of alignment.
  • Draft helpful recommendations for course improvements by citing annotations from the QM Rubric and evidence from the course. 
Building Resource Lists in Canvas: How to (Easily and Ethically) Link to Resources

Take a brain break from final exams and grading, and join us for a lunch & learn event to learn about tools that can help you create and manage reading lists within Canvas. Angie Pusnik and Meg Galasso, IU Kokomo librarians, will be joined by Rick Rybak and Mike Abrahamson, EBSCO representatives, and will show you how to use the Canvas Reading Lists tool. Get hands-on experience developing lists of journal articles, e-books, physical items within the library, web resources, and reading assignments for your spring 2019 courses. We will also discuss how to embed permalinks within Canvas modules so your students can easily and ethically access course materials.

Lunch will be provided. Please register in advance so we can gather an accurate headcount.

Canvas: Modules & Pages
In this workshop we will create pages, manage course content and materials using the Modules and Pages tools in Canvas. This course is designed to give instructors who already have some knowledge of Canvas a more in-depth hands on experience with creating pages as well as creating and managing modules. The workshop is beneficial for both online and in-class instructors who are looking for better ways to present in-class material rather than using PowerPoint. Class presentations/materials are then saved with the course (making them easier to find), easier to export to the next semester, and additionally provide students with notes for review. This course is one of the required classes in the Basic Online Course Development Certificate.
Canvas: SpeedGrader & DocViewer
In this workshop we will explore the use of SpeedGrader in various types of Canvas assignments and the DocViewer tool to grade online documents. This course is designed to give instructors who already have some knowledge of Canvas a more in-depth hands on experience with grading options.
Canvas: Quizzes
In this workshop we will explore the use of the Quizzes tool in Canvas. Create quizzes, manage Question Banks, and look at Quiz settings and how to moderate Quizzes. This course is designed to give instructors who already have some knowledge of Canvas a more in-depth hands on experience with the Quizzing tool.
IU eTexts
IU eTexts are more than digital copies of traditional textbooks. They are tools that help reduce the cost of education, while enhancing student learning both in and outside the classroom.  Join us to learn more about eTexts during scheduled General Information Sessions as well as Group/Individual Consultations available by appointment.
Kaltura: CaptureSpace & Closed Captioning

With Kaltura, instructors can upload media and record their screen or webcam. Kaltura can be used to narrate PowerPoint slides. Kaltura is integrated into Canvas. Captioning and transcript features are now integrated into Kaltura. The captioning service allows faculty and staff to order captions and transcripts for media uploaded into Kaltura. You will learn how to use Kaltura CaptureSpace and how to edit closed captions.  This course is a prequisite for Kaltura: Quizzes.

Kaltura: Quizzes
Description coming soon.  Prerequisite:  Kaltura: CaptureSpace & Closed Captioning
Quick Check
This workshop is an introduction to Quick Check.  Quick Check is a tool for creating inline assessments in Canvas, allowing instructors to integrate frequent low-stakes assessments into their courses. Providing a mix of higher and lower stakes assessments can help instructors get to know students' work, create multiple opportunities for feedback, and deter cheating.
Using VoiceThread to Engage Students Workshop
Use VoiceThread to communicate, collaborate, and connect with your students. VoiceThread can be used in Canvas as a tool for student discussion, narrating PowerPoints, or allowing students comment on your slides using microphone, webcam, text, phone, and audio-file upload. Upload, share and discuss documents, presentations, images, audio files and videos. Over 50 different types of media can be used in a VoiceThread.

Zoom is our web collaboration tool available to all IU students, faculty, and staff. Zoom provides high-quality audio and video and integrates into Canvas as an external tool. Anyone who has the meeting URL can attend a Zoom meeting even if they aren't affiliated with IU; however, only those in the IU community can create Zoom accounts and schedule meetings. In this session you will learn the basics about Zoom and how to set up Office Hours for your online students using Zoom.

Fully Online Sessions

MERLOT and Search Strategies for Online Materials
Looking for some new resources to enhance student learning in your course? MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching) provides descriptions and links to online learning resources including case studies, tutorials, animations, interactive multimedia, reference materials, quizzes/assessments, drills, and presentations suitable for higher education learning. Creative Commons, also introduced in this class, helps you find copyrighted media that come with some advance permissions for use. It is also suitable for faculty teaching hybrids or those looking for supplementary online materials for classroom courses. This training is delivered in Canvas using web resources, is self-paced, and can start and end when convenient for your schedule. The class requires completing assignments using MERLOT and Creative Commons. This course counts for those earning their Basic Online Course Development Certificate. Register anytime for the MERLOT class and you will receive the instructions to get started. Suitable for instructors.
Online Course Strategies
Experience an online class in Canvas from a student perspective when you take this four-week workshop to guide you through course development for an online course. This course is required for those faculty earning their Basic Online Course Development Certificate. It is also useful for faculty planning or revising hybrid courses. Participants will work on a specific course, selected by them, during the workshop, making course level decisions and working on developing one module, or short segment, of the course. Weekly workshop assignments are due. This workshop does not result in a fully-developed online course but gets you started.  The workshop includes reading two books from the Jossey-Bass Guides to Online Teaching, which will be purchased for you. Past participants have estimated the class taking them about 3-7 hours per week.
Universal Design Guidelines
This workshop will focus on reasons why accessibility for students with disabilities is important, principles of Universal Design of Learning that can be used to result in a more inclusive online learning environment for all students, and practical tips on making instructional materials more accessible using common software (like Office).  The workshop is taught totally online in Canvas using web resources. Faculty will experience this Canvas experience from a student perspective. It is recommended for faculty who create/revise online or blended courses or are considering doing so. Faculty who use online resources or create instructional materials as supplementary learning as part of classroom courses can also benefit. This course is required for those earning their Basic Online Course Development Certificate.
