What is a Virtual Workshop?

CNDLS staff will be offering a number of practical, tool and task-focused workshops, guiding participants step-by-step through the process for accomplishing various functionalities of a specific GU-supported digital tool. By the end of each workshop, participants will have practiced a handful of skills and created at least one tangible artifact within the digital tool.

Upcoming Workshops:

August 14 @ 12pm

The current moment in our world, with all its tension, complication, and emotion, is a difficult one for many people. Many of us feel a strong desire to engage with our students about current events and with news that might be challenging or tragic, but are not always sure how to do so in a productive and supportive way. This interactive session will focus on effective tools and strategies for enabling and supporting such discussions in a remote learning environment, even when they may be difficult and we may be uncertain of how best to do so.
