The School of Education (SOE) Academic Technology Specialist (ATS) endeavors to assist SOE faculty and staff with their pedagogical and technological skills to improve classroom instruction and make their use of technology more effective and efficient.
Teaching is not just about the tools that we use but about the planning that goes into the way we present information to our learners. A self-paced Canvas course has been created to assist instructors in SOE to learn more about the resources and tools that are available to them as a member of SOE as well as a part of UNC Greensboro.
This course is designed for School of Education (SOE) instructors new to online teaching and those currently teaching online. Participants will use the Quality Matters (QM) standards to review their online course and participate in assessments to show their understanding of the standards to satisfy the initial professional development for online instruction requirements.
This course allows participants the opportunity to learn about the Canvas Studio tool, see examples of how the tool is being used by other instructors, and experiment with how they could use the tool in their semester courses. Participants are given a designer role, allowing them to add, edit, and delete course content and a student role so that they can experience the tool as their students would.
To ensure its online content is available to all users, UNC Greensboro offers a website hub for web accessibility support services and educational resources for faculty, staff, and students.
