Prepping for Spring Quarter in Bruin Learn

Friday, March 4 | 10:00am – Noon

Bring your laptop!

Invitation Message from Rachel Kennison, CEILS Director:

Dear Colleagues,

With February in full swing, we are now more than half way through the winter quarter. As we navigate teaching in-person while masked and prepare for the spring quarter, we would like to invite you to our upcoming workshops to best support you and your classes.

With the goal in mind of practicing being in-person, both workshops will take place in-person in Hershey Hall Salon. If you’d like to attend both or one of our workshops, please RSVP your attendance using this link:

With much gratitude,

Rachel and the CEILS team

Teach Using Active Learning While Masked

Friday, February 18

10:00am – 11:30am

Teaching in masks is…..awkward? challenging? terrifying? Come to this session to get ideas on how you might modify your in-person teaching due to the mask requirements. We will model some active learning strategies and also share ideas for how you might use technology to include students that need to join your class remotely (due to quarantine or other reasons). We recommend you bring the type of mask(s) you will be teaching in so you can get used to projecting while wearing that mask.

During this session we will be offering time and space to work on your course with support staff present and available to pull up a chair and answer questions and offer recommendations. Our goal is to help you walk away with near fully developed Week 0 and Week 1 course modules for Spring Quarter, and a much greater comfort level using Bruin Learn.
