ITSO Summer Series (original)

2015 Summer Workshops for Faculty

There is no better time than summer to learn new skills and acquire some cool tech tools!

Have you been looking for ways to improve your courses or just want to learn something new during the summer? The Hawaiʻi CC Instructional Technology Support Office (ITSO) will be holding a Summer Series of workshops for instructors or anyone interested in keeping up with technology. Although these workshops are geared toward integration with Laulima, anyone interested is welcomed to attend these hands-on "make it and take it" sessions.


Attend one or attend all…These workshops are designed so that you can not only learn about a tool, but practice and take home a completed project (or, just stay as long as you have time).


The best part? All workshops are FREE and all tools are free/low cost! Just make sure to register. (Workshops with less than 3 registrations may be cancelled.)


NOTES:

  1. All EAST Hawaiʻi workshops will be held on the Upper Campus, in Building 346 (Business Education and Technology). No parking passes are required during the summer.
  2. All WEST Hawaiʻi workshops are tentatively scheduled for the Kealakekua Campus. Workshops may be relocated, postponed or cancelled based on the scheduled move to Palamanui.

Lessons is a new tool available for course content delivery that was added to Laulima in the December 2014 Laulima update. The use of this tool has a lot of features that faculty have been asking for: structured release of content, in-lesson links to assignments, discussions and tests, etc. To make the most of using Lessons, it should be paired with Tests & Quizzes for testing, so these two tools will be covered in this workshop.

Laulima Tools: Modules/Tasks, Tests & Surveys

  • EAST HAWAIʻI
    Tues. 6/16/15, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
    Upper Campus, Bldg. 346
    Rm. 133

  • WEST HAWAIʻI
    Tues. 6/9/15, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

If Lessons/Tests & Quizzes is the "new" option for content delivery and testing, then Modules/Tasks, Tests & Surveys is the "traditional" option that we have been promoting and using since 2011. (If you're new to online teaching, consider attending both of these workshops being held on this day so that you can do a side by side comparison and decide which option is best for you.)

  • EdPuzzle & TedEd – Ensure comprehension by inserting interactive comments and questions into videos.
