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.  For a full listing of CNDLS events, please click here

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.

August 21 @ 12pm

Our Jesuit mission calls us to see, know, and serve our students as “whole people,” which offers us both an opportunity and a serious responsibility. The Georgetown campus safety net operates to support our students’ health, wellness, and safety, as these affect and connect with their ability to engage in their academics. There are many new challenges to connecting with and attending to our students’ well-being when we are not able to check-in in person and yet, it’s of even greater significance for supporting them and their learning. This session is an opportunity to learn about how our campus resource professionals are working to translate in-person practices to distance practices, what students are currently experiencing with this global health pandemic, and how we can all work together to activate the campus safety net for students during this time.

October 1 @ 12:00pm

Join CNDLS for the first session of our Fall Workshop Series, “Student Engagement in a Remote Class Setting”.
One of the biggest challenges that you face as faculty when teaching in a romate class setting is understanding your shift in role when it comes to student engagement: you are no longer the arbiter of engagement, but instead the facilitator. In other words, we have to design and plan much more purposefully to create conditions and opportunities for engagement. This webinar will discuss strategies to help you and your students have meaningful engagement with the course materials and each other.

October 5 @ 11:00am
Join our Fall Workshop Series for “Gathering & Using Student Feedback”. As we approach the middle of our semester, it is a point to be celebrated (survival!) and a point to be examined. What is going well? What minor adjustments can we make before end of semester? What are some quick ways we can answer those two questions that will inform your teaching? Join us for a conversation around rapid, efficient ways to gather feedback before fall break, the types of questions that interest you most, and what to do with feedback when you get it. This session is available to all Georgetown faculty and staff.
