FlexPace Faculty Training
6331

9:30 - 11:30 AM

Successfully Managing the Tortoise and the Hare in Your CBE Courses

FlexPace courses allow students to set their own pace, which oftentimes can be more tortoise-like than lightning-speed hare. In this uniquely diverse online environment, FlexPace faculty may find it challenging to manage students on both extremes of the speed spectrum without employing some automated technology assistance from eLearn. Join us as we explore both new and tried-and-true ways to use technology to support both the tortoises and hares in your CBE courses. We will share the latest FlexPace news, practice with eLearn tools that support regular and substantive interaction, discuss gradebook and course management, and more. Bring your challenges and we will problem-solve to find creative ways to meet your FlexPace needs!

No prerequisite but, at least one semester teaching a CBE course or a spring CBE course assignment would be valuable.
