New webinars added for the next two weeks

We have just scheduled another series of webinars for the next two weeks to help with converting to remote teaching (Tracie Miller-Nobles, Jennifer Cainas, and me.) Most of these webinars are just 30 minutes. Go ahead and register even if you have a time conflict; we will be emailing out links to the recordings and handouts after the webinars.

Hang in there during these challenging times. We can do this, but only if we do it together.

  1. Dear Wendy,

    Thank you and your colleagues for all your work in presenting these webinars. I participated in the Polling webinar last week and I look forward to your digging a little deeper on both PollEverywhere and Kahoot in the next couple weeks.

    I have used both of these in class and have found them good active learning activities. In your webinar last week, you said these both can be used in asynchronous on-line classes. Could you please take a couple minutes in your upcoming webinars to explain how that will work and how to set them up? For example:

    • Are the links provided in your PowerPoints on your LMS? • Do you leave them open for a few days? • When do the students see the results of their responses and how they fared against others on the poll or Kahoot? • Can you still have a competition with Kahoot if students are accessing the game at various times?

    Have a good week ahead in presenting your classes!
