New Contract Instructor Orientation
August 13, 2020 at 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM
If you’re a contract instructor who will be teaching an online or distance course this summer, Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) is here to help you! Whether you’re getting ready to teach your first course at Carleton, or if you’re returning after a break, you undoubtedly have questions about policies and procedures, teaching tips, and educational technology, especially in light of the ongoing pandemic and the university’s move to online teaching in the summer 2020 terms.
Our new Orientation will have two parts.
- Part One (*now viewable*) will be online and asynchronous, and it includes a series of screen capture recordings and supporting materials that you can consult, at your convenience, in the online environment. In the interest of providing timely assistance, we have made this resource page available to you, but note that it is still under construction and we will be adding a few additional resources between now and June 25th. We ask that you take some time before August 13th to review those materials and prepare questions.
- Part Two of the Orientation will be online and synchronous, with registrants and hosts gathering via Zoom on Thursday, August 13th, 5:30-8:30pm, to do some brief introductions and then take your questions relative to the online resources and/or other areas participants wish to discuss. We will have representatives from TLS and other departments on campus on hand to help answer your questions. The link and password for this session will be emailed to you separately, closer to the date.
Space is in the August 13th online Q & A session is limited, so please be sure to register via the form below.
