Description: This workshop will introduce participants to online teaching skills, and explore both technical skills and pedagogical frameworks necessary to facilitate fully online or hybrid (blended) courses. Participants will differentiate between the characteristics of online and blended courses; identify the basic pedagogical considerations that must frame an online course; delineate the basics of building an online course; practice how to effectively perform the role of online course facilitator; identify communication tools to increase student engagement; and outline elements of effective assessment activities. The workshop is divided into four main areas: (1) Andragogy and Pillars of Online Teaching & Learning; (2) Building Online Courses; (3) Facilitating Online Courses (Promoting Interaction & Communication); (4) Assessing Learners and Enhancing Retention and Transfer of Knowledge.

Description:Videos should be produced and delivered in ways that ensure that all viewers can access their content. In addition to delivering the video in an accessible media player, and provide transcripts, accessible videos include captions. Multiple alternatives are available for video captioning, from human-based to automated-speech recognition (ASR) captioning.
At the end of this introductory session, participants will be able to discuss the importance of video captions; identify benefits and drawbacks of ASR captioning; and create, add, and edit ASR captions to videos with SharkMedia. Anyone at NSU who creates videos and can upload to SharkMedia is welcome to attend.

Description:In this session, we will describe Kolb's Experiential Learning Cycle and how we can use it to design online experiences for our students. First, we will review Kolb's Cycle and then share some activities and tools that can be used to facilitate each of the four modes including concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization, and active experimentation. The target audience includes anyone who is facilitating experiential learning across the six ExEL pillars (i.e., mentored research, community engagement, professional growth, travel exploration, experiential coursework, and undergraduate leadership) in a blended or fully online format. Examples from various contexts will be shared.

In Zoom News, this week there are some minor updates to be aware of as we list below. The full listing of updates are available on the Zoom Website.
On May 17th, 2020, Zoom released several updates for Windows listed below:

The transition to online has presented many challenges and opportunities, one of which is the need to include video content in your courses. When it comes to sharing video, the University through OIIT has provided us with several different tools, so how do you decide what is the best tool for the job?
The chart above breaks down specific features and specifications for the variety of multimedia options available within the University. Your choice will likely depend on what you need to record for your scenario, and when or how you want to make it available to your students.
As the Office of Innovation and Information Technology (OIIT) has brought Zoom to our University, they too have begun to phase out GoToTraining. Please read the message below about access to GoToTraining and your access to recordings from prior sessions. Then check out the Workshop offering about how to archive your recordings just below.
As the Winter 2020 semester draws to a close, it’s important to remember that May 15th, 2020 marked the date when the GoToTraining integration was no longer available in Canvas. Currently, students do not have access to GoToTraining recordings in Canvas courses. If you wish to make your recordings available beyond the cutoff date, you will need to download them from GoToTraining’s website and place them in SharkMedia. Instructions on how to do so can be found here: Archive GoToTraining Recordings
As a licensed user, access to your GoToTraining account will continue to be available outside of Canvas until 6/30/2020. It will be your responsibility to download any additional recordings that you would like to keep before your account expires. If you need additional assistance you can call GoToTraining support toll-free at 1-833-851-8340.
For additional questions on this topic reach out to Larry Lettie (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Wendy Meyers (email@example.com).
These webinars are provided by Zoom.
Duration: 45 minutes
Prerequisites: An understanding of e-mail and video conferencing principles is helpful.
In this session you will learn:
1) How to download the Zoom applications and join a Zoom meeting;
2) How to schedule a meeting and send out invitations;
3) In-meeting controls and differentiation tools (including the waiting room, share screen, breakout rooms).
Time will be allocated at the end of the session for live Q&A.

In response to the transition to online learning, many publishers and other content providers are making additional resources freely available online for a limited time for students, teachers, and librarians. You may take advantage of these resources while they are temporarily available at no cost to you.
Through our partnerships with various colleges and departments, there have been several valuable workshops that were held which you may not have been able to attend. Check out our SharkMedia Channel to see recordings of past workshops such as:
ExEL Professional Development Series: Experiential Education 101- WHAT, WHY, and HOW
ExEL Professional Development Series: Going Online in a Hurry- Let's Talk About It!Plagiarism and Using TurnItIn for Your Online Courses
These workshops and additional video assets are all available in the LEC Faculty Development Channel.
