Teaching and learning with Moodle: support professionals and resources are ready!
Those who support teaching and learning with Moodle at the University of Minnesota are ready for the flurry of fall semester preparation activities. The Moodle Open Clinic, delivered collaboratively by staff from Information Technology (IT), the Center for Educational Innovation, and the University Libraries, is a great example.
At the Moodle Open Clinic, faculty, instructors and staff can get hands-on support and consultation as they design and build courses. Moodle Clinic staff will help participants set up course sites, activities and resources, as well as help faculty and instructors plan how to teach with Moodle or learn how to leverage tools such as Lynda.com and course reserves. Participants are encouraged bring a syllabus and course materials if they have specific questions, or to stop by to get the conversation started. Moodle Open Clinic details follow.
Wednesday, Sep. 2, noon - 3 p.m., Nicholson Hall 135
Thursday, Sep. 3, noon - 2 p.m., Nicholson Hall 115
There is no registration required, and this event is offered free of charge.
The Moodle Clinic is scheduled to coincide with the 2015 Teaching Enrichment Series - two days of workshops designed to address a range of instructional experiences and goals.
