Workshops

In mid-August every year, CETL sponsors programming for two full days so that campus educators can share and explore best practices in teaching and learning pedagogy. All UW-Superior educators (both classroom and outside of classroom) are invited to attend. Attendance is limited to 30, so participants need to reserve their placement through CETL. These CETL Summer Teaching and Learning Intensive Workshops are typically held in one of the Yellowjacket Union meeting rooms from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., with complimentary refreshments and lunch provided.

Learn@UW-Superior Hands On !
August 20 - 21, 2014

CETL invites all UW-Superior instructors (faculty, academic instructional staff, ad hoc instructors; distance and on-campus) to sign up for the following sessions to learn the basics of Desire2Learn at UW-Superior.  To reserve a seat, email cetl@uwsuper.edu with your name.  The training is limited to 25 seats, so register now to reserve your place. Training in Session 2 builds on information presented in Session 1, so you must sign up for both in order to participate in Session 2.

Session 1:  Wednesday afternoon, August 20:  12:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Session 2:  Thursday morning, August 21:  8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (noon)
Location:  Swenson 2020 Computer Lab Room for both sessions

These sessions will give instructors new to UW-Superior hand-on training on how to use our Desire2Learn learning environment as well as give our returning faculty a refresher.

Tom Tu and Stacy Leno will be setting up a basic course with News, Content, Discussions, Dropbox, Grades, and Quizzes.  They will be using sample training courses, so you won't need to bring any actual course materials with you.  If you have questions or ideas for one of your courses, there will be some time to work on them during these sessions.
