If you’re a contract instructor who will be teaching an online or distance course this July/August, 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 and distance teaching in the summer 2020 terms.

Our new orientation will have two parts:

  • Part One will be online and asynchronous, and includes a series of screen capture recordings and supporting materials that you can consult, at your convenience, in the online environment. We ask that you take some time during the following weeks to review those materials and prepare questions.
  • Part Two will be online and synchronous, with registrants and hosts gathering via Zoom on Thursday, June 25, 5:30-8:30 p.m., 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, hopefully, other departments on campus on hand to help answer your questions. Information about the Zoom session will be sent to registrants privately, via email, closer to the date of the synchronous session.

Space in the June 25 online Q & A session is limited, so please be sure to register here.
