Engagement Strategies in Carmen

Tue, 9/19/2017 | 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM | Enarson Classroom Building  017


Participants in this session will be able to:

  1. Identify and work with levels of engagement (e.g. none, minimal, semi-cognitive, critical thinking).
  2. Employ strategies to foster engagement between students in a course.
  3. Employ strategies to foster engagement between students and instructor in a course.
  4. Employ strategies to select or build course materials that better engage students.

Don’t miss out on all that CarmenCanvas has to offer! Attend a session where ODEE instructional designers will walk you through the functionality available to you in the Canvas learning management system and the best practices for employing these tools in your course design.

This 90-minute workshop will help you leverage Carmen to better engage students in online learning. Facilitators will demonstrate how to build a rich scaffolded assignment that guides students through a series of learning activities that require them to step out of their role as passive observers and become critical thinkers and peer-to-peer instructors. You'll also learn how to use Carmen tools to not only make grading assignments as efficient as possible, but also to provide meaningful, actionable feedback to students. By the end of the workshop, you'll have a deeper understanding of how to design online learning spaces for active participation and a head start on incorporating these principles in your own teaching.
If you understand the basics of Carmen but are looking for tools to make your course more robust and engaging, this event is for you. Participants should have attended a Start in Carmen workshop or have a basic understanding of or prior experience working in Canvas.

This is a BYOD (bring-your-own-device) event—if you would like to follow along with the demo, bring a laptop.

Presented by the Distance Education Learning and Teaching Academy (DELTA).
