Lorin Grieve, PharmD, will facilitate a Game Design workshop co-sponsored by the School of Pharmacy and the Teaching Center on Thursday, November 8. In this workshop, Dr. Grieve will explain the process of iterative game design with a focus on application to learning environments. Combining instructional design with game design can create experiences that enhance a learner’s knowledge or skills. Sign up via the Game Design workshop registration form.
This fall, the University Center for Teaching and Learning is piloting a series of professional development events designed for part-time faculty. Part-time faculty can sign up for two types of events: open hours sessions and workshops. Teaching Center consultants will be available during open hours to answer questions regarding pedagogy, course or assignment design, Blackboard, and technology questions.
The Teaching Center, along with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, will be piloting Ally in Blackboard this coming fall 2019 term. Ally provides instructors with guidance on how to correct accessibility issues with course content, which means learning materials will work better with assistive technologies for students with disabilities as well as on mobile phones and tablets. Instructors interested in piloting Ally in Blackboard this fall can visit our website to learn more.
