Seeking WebEx Teaching Consultations, March 2016

Did you know that the faculty development services that the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) offers are now available to the regional campuses?  If you have questions about designing a course, using HuskyCT, incorporating active-learning techniques, preparing presentations, improving your spoken English, or other teaching-related concerns, you can now tune in to CETL’s faculty drop-in hours via WebEx from your office computer and even from home.

WebEx is an online conferencing tool you can use anywhere you have internet access on your computer; if you can get online, you can meet with others and share data, presentations, and online demonstrations.  Anyone with a NetID can use the WebEx Community, and WebEx allows you to not only talk face to face but collaborate, with screen and document sharing.

Use this tool to connect with CETL representatives who specialize in such instructional design topics as writing student-centered objectives; designing online discussion prompts; hybridizing flipping, or blending a course; developing rubrics for grading; creating authentic assessments; and much more.  Or meet with educational technology specialists who can help with web design, HuskyCT, GoogleApps, Respondus, Pinterest, and other technologies for teaching.

CETL’s WebEx drop-in hours are currently scheduled for

  • Mondays, 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.
  • Thursdays 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Please note that these WebEx hours are also live drop-in hours; come visit us in the ROWE 319 Teaching Innovation Room.  If you’d like to tune in and talk with a CETL representative, simply log in to the WebEx Drop-In Hours “personal room” during the hours listed above.  Visit UConn WebEx for details on how to attend a WebEx meeting.

If you have questions about this service, please contact Suzanne LaFleur.
