CTT Offers Flexible Workshop Options

Starting in Spring 2017, the CTT will provide workshops in multiple formats to support William Paterson instructors. We hope these new formats will accommodate instructors' busy schedules.

Center for Teaching with Technology

New Workshop Formats

  • Three-hour workshops including teaching with Blackboard, Improving your Online Course, and Active Learning. 
  • One-hour workshops on a variety of topics including Blackboard Assignments & Grade Center, Social Media, and the Qualtrics Survey Tool. 
  • Workshops or one-on-one consultations at the time and location of your preference. Faculty can take the opportunity to think creatively and searchingly about theories and ideas that contribute to the quality of teaching by participating in a variety of instructional technology workshops. 
  • Most face-to-face workshops will take place  Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays when most faculty are on campus. 
  • The default location for workshops will be Library120k but we are happy to come to you. 
  • One-hour workshops are also offered as one-on-one consultations at the instructor's convenience 
  • Online Resources about various topics including the Online Teaching, Hybrid Course design, Open Educational Resources, and Universal Design for Learning.  

Instructional Design Mentorship – Faculty can participate in a one-on-one partnership that gives individual support for reshaping current or new course design with appropriate pedagogy and best uses of technologies. The instructional design mentorship provides proven research- based methodologies, course templates, and technology tools that focus on learning activities and desired performance results. 

Instructional Technology Support - Faculty can request an individual session on using instructional technologies to enhance or improve their teaching. 

CTT Upgrade to Active Learning Classroom

Over the Winter break, the CTT is being upgraded with the same technology as the Active Learning Classrooms (University Hall 115 and 128). This will allow for instructors to get hands-on training and become familiar with these technologies well in advance of teaching in these dynamic classrooms.
