About this session

This session will look at a few online resources and applications we can add to online content to keep students engaged. In addition, we'll discuss how The Mountaineers website and Google Classrooms can be used to support each model.

This session is intended for course leaders and committee chairs who are working to redesign existing courses - or imagine new courses - during Phase 2 and even Phase 3 of our COVID-19 operations. The first 60 minutes of the session will be majority presentation with some discussion, and the last 30 minutes will be reserved for an optional Q&A. This session will be recorded and available for viewing at a later date.

Registration Required

Please RSVP to attend this session. A Zoom meeting link will be sent to all registrations on the day of the meeting.
