Using Awards & Gamification in D2L BrightspaceTue, 28 Sep 20211:30pm - 2:30pm4/50Jeff Mundee, Instructional Technology Specialist

(More advanced) In this workshop we will look at how to use restrictions, challenges, additional content, media, and news, with the Awards system which can give out badges and certificates for completing various criteria. Reward your students with something other than grades, offer optional time pressure, opt-in supplemental material. Drive it all with proven gamification methods like FOMO, loops, perceived randomization. Motivate them and enhance value for your students with no overhead for the instructor week to week by leveraging automation in D2L.

Teaching Hybrid CoursesWed, 3 Nov 20219:00am - 10:30am3/50Richard Duijnstee, Instructional Designer & Acting Director Teaching & Learning Services & Emily Clark, Instructional Designer

Teaching to a student audience that is partly in-person and partly in a remote environment (such as MS Teams) requires some special attention, a little practice, and some guidance on what tools and teaching techniques to use to make both 'audiences' follow along, be engaged, and reach the learning objectives of your course.

Digging deeper into the world of in-class technology, adding Streaming Stations, projectors and Teams into the mix, while also discussing alternatives that are more 'minimalist' in nature. A session for both the tech-lover and tech-hater.

Course Design WorkshopThu, 2 Dec 20219:00am - 12:00pm7/50Richard Duijnstee, Instructional Designer & Acting Director Teaching & Learning Services & Emily Clark, Instructional Designer

This session follows a "workshop format", in which we will combine sharing information about good, solid course design with breakout moments for attendees to think about, discuss, and share viewpoints on the method at hand. You will come out of this session with a plan to implement the methods into your course(s).

Modern day teaching uses a combination of asynchronous and synchronous learning tools, and sometimes requires teaching a class made up of both in-person students and remote students. We address various strategies and tools to use for different course structures (e.g. Streaming Station, classroom management, D2L, Teams, etc.). We will also offer a method for course design and implementing various teaching tools into your course design.
