New Contract Instructor Orientation – Session 1

August 4, 2021 at 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM


If you’re a contract instructor who will be teaching an online or distance course, 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 2021 term.

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. We ask that you take some time in advance of attending one of our synchronous options.
  • Part Two of the Orientation will be online and synchronous, with registrants and hosts gathering via Zoom on Wednesday, August 4th, 5:30-8:30pm or Tuesday, August 17th, 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. (Note: these are duplicate sessions) We will have representatives from TLS and other departments on campus on hand to help answer your questions. The link and password for the session you register for will be emailed to you separately, closer to the date.

Space in the synchronous online Q & A sessions is limited, so please be sure to register early.
