Educational Technology Users Group Launches T.E.L.L. Series

The Educational Technology Users Group (ETUG) Community recently launched their T.E.L.L. (Tuesdays with ETUG Lunch n’ Learn) Series.
T.E.L.L. is a new series of lunchtime webinars held on the last Tuesday of the month to provide an opportunity for members to present workshops and share materials they’ve developed to a wider community.
The first session – “Strategies for Effective and Efficient Course Design and Online Teaching”, was facilitated by Amanda Coolidge, Instructional Designer at Royal Roads University and Chair of the Steering Committee for ETUG.
The session touched upon topics such as course design strategies, utilizing office hours effectively, assessments, workload strategies and managing student questions. With a group of 30 participants, conversation did pick up quickly and was a lively one hour session.
Participants really liked the quick and easy-to-do format focused on things participants can put into practice immediately. The next session is scheduled to be on Tuesday Feb.28th noon – 1 pm.
