National Distance Learning Week - November 7 to 11, 2022

The Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation (CTEI) has provided a page for Rush faculty to visit often during National Distance Learning Week that highlight innovative teaching and learning methods for online and distance learning. 

On your first stop to learning more, visit the United States Distance and Learning Association’s website for free webinars and resources. Then, find out information on an opportunity where you can showcase and share your innovative and excellent teaching methods at the TCC Worldwide Online Conference in 2023.

 

 

 

 

 

When it comes to teaching online, you don’t have to do it alone!

Did you know that CTEI has 5 instructional designers to help you? Yes, we do!
Did you know that an instructional designer can….
  • look over your online class and offer suggestions?

  • help you revise any of your presentations to be more effective?

  • help you create instructional videos with Panopto or Canvas Studio?

  • give you suggestions for high quality discussion board questions so students actually WANT to participate?

  • design some really cool features for your course like drop down menus, drag and drop activities, and more using H5P software?

  • jazz up your course with an instructional technology you’re not using yet?

  • help you organize your modules to make them effective and efficient?

  • assist you with designing assessments and assignments?

We can do all of this and more! We are just an email away. You can pick any instructional designer (Emily, Laura, Peg, Branka, Lynette) or contact CTEI@rush.edu and ask for what you need.

Note—even though this page is focused on distance learning, the designers can also help with face-to-face and hybrid teaching too!

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

 

Educators quickly responded to challenges related to the ongoing pandemic. What have we learned? What do students say? Have their voices been heard? What trends and issues emerged, especially for quality online and blended learning? What will happen as we continue going forward?

TCC Hawaii invites faculty, support professionals, librarians, counselors, student affairs professionals, graduate students, administrators, and consultants interested in learning technologies and evolving practices to submit proposals for online presentations.

 

THEME

The TCC 2023 Online Conference invites proposals for presentations and papers related to current and innovative technology tools that facilitate learning in today’s educational environments.

Conference coordinators are interested in the ongoing transformation of online instruction in response to Covid-19, what we have learned, and what post-pandemic innovations will ensure quality and transform learning in the years ahead.

 

The coordinators are also interested in continuing to build a sense of community among colleagues. We encourage other engaging formats such as panel presentations, interactive workshops, technology tool demos, convening special interest groups or otherwise encouraging in-depth discussions about relevant topics.
