In 2011, L&S Learning Support Services’s Instructional Technology Consulting team created a faculty development workshop series, which began as face-to-face sessions before transitioning into an innovative, non-credit, online-only self-registration course in Desire2Learn for the 2012 academic year. The course featured four month-long modules on the following topics: Facilitating Online Discussions, Media Production, Blended Learning, and Active Learning. For each of these topics, the consulting team facilitated weekly sessions which provided resources, activities, and discussion forums for each topic.
This D2L course was so successful that we decided to create a stand-alone website so that this course could be accessible on the public web. We’re excited to present the Teaching with Technology website at https://teachingwithtech.lss.wisc.edu. We’ve left most of the contact and activities from the original online course intact, though we will no longer be moderating the various discussion forums and activities.
