Register to receive the Zoom room link and password before the session

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Sinclair’s recent transition to remote learning brought with it a plethora of technological changes for how we view teaching and learning. Many of the technologies we now see as common were once only ideas on a white board. As much will change going forwards, it’s imperative we understand some of the technology-infused trends that lie just over the horizon and how they may inform how Sinclair continues its strong teaching and learning practices. The Horizon Report, published by EDUCAUSE, is one of the leading evaluations of current trends and propositions for the future. Come join us and let’s break down these possibilities and how we might innovatively embrace these possibilities in our attempts to “find the need and endeavor to meet it!”

Register to receive the Zoom room link and password before the session

2:00 - 3:00 PM

Hands-on exploration session to introduce faculty members to LinkedInLearning and its resources for faculty professional development. Opportunities to consider if and how it could be used with your students. LinkedInLearning offers more than 16,000 course; some directly related to Sinclair curriculum, particularly in business, technology and creative areas. Other courses include soft skills, career preparation and many topics that could be related to content in your courses. Spend an hour exploring to see how it can help you and if it can help your students.

Participants need to have a linked in learning account. The facilitator will contact each person who registers for the class and confirm that they have an active LinkedIN Learning account (provided free to current employees of Sinclair) and will provide step by step instructions and/or watching/waiting as a person works through the process.

It would be especially helpful if participants have two devices -- one for watching the Zoom session and one for using LinkedInLearning during the session. One device with the ability to manage two windows can also work.
