FACULTY PEER TO PEER: Moodle for Asynchronous Learning

  • Wednesday, July 8 from 11 am - Noon
  • Presented by Pauline Hoffmann and Chris Mackowski (both from the Jandoli School of Communication), and Mike Hoffman (Associate Provost & Chief Information Officer)
  • Zoom Link is available here (requires MySBU login)
  • Some people are wondering exactly how they might set up their classes on Moodle and use different tools. Online teaching offers many pros and cons, which we’ll try to address, with an emphasis on the many advantages asynchronous instruction provides. 

    This workshop will cover a variety of ways that we can use Moodle for asynchronous learning. Topics covered will benefit instructors teaching in any modality. We will include practical discussions on issues such as alternatives to testing, quizzing, and converting existing class materials to an online format. Softer skills, such as expressing yourselves, so your students know your personality, will also be covered.
