Tech Tools to Engage:
A (Re)Vision of Using Technology in an Online Class (8.10.22)

The education landscape has drastically changed in the last two years. The COVID-19 pandemic created an education landscape of emergency online teaching, only to see that landscape shift as online, hybrid, and hyflex options became more commonplace in both PK-12 and higher education. Technology takes a more vital role in this changing education landscape requiring that educators take a more active role in choosing technology to enhance not only instruction but also belonging and community building in the classroom.

What has not changed in the last two years is the need for a framework to determine when and how to best integrate technology in the classroom. How do you choose technology that supports course outcomes, engages students, and does not overwhelm users? Join us as we discuss reasons to use technology and questions to ask yourself in choosing technology. We will offer a K-12 and higher education perspective as well as give you our top technology picks.

Instructional Designer Burnout (5.11.22)

Who are instructional designers post-COVID-19? This webinar will discuss the role of instructional designers to strategize how to move forward efficiently in serving our institutions in a new world. Location, job tasks, and health are a few of the themes to be discussed in light of reenergizing and aligning the instructional designer role with the root of “why” we do what we do.
