Engage Students, Save Time: Successful Integration of the cuLearn Online Course Template

August 18, 2020 at 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM


Facilitators: Justyna Szluinska (EDC), Alaba Agbatogun (EDC)

The cuLearn Course Template is designed with student engagement in mind. We’ve taken a few proven strategies and built them into a framework that you can use to streamline the development of your online course.

The template created specifically for Carleton instructors is a great way to get a running start to building your course and facilitating it in a way that will foster student learning and save you time.

This workshop will walk you through customizing and populating the online template for your course, as well as include a discussion of strategies and practices that you can utilize to structure your course in an organized, accessible and engaging way.
