Start Strong: The Sophomore Edition
We're launching the Start Strong Program in August! This program consists of both asynchronous online modules and synchronous (virtual) sessions (throughout August 2022).
This initiative (led by Anna) combines asynchronous, self-directed online modules (learn more about the Start Strong modules) with synchronous, virtual collaboration, and brainstorming sessions (register for the session below). Fun fact: we developed these modules based on your feedback; there was a desire for support materials that would help instructors get up and running as efficiently as possible.
What will I do in this program?
While this program is heavy on practical application (using academic toolbox tools), it also strategically sprinkles in instructional design tips and tricks that apply to all course modalities (online, in-person, hybrid, etc.). Perhaps the best part? You choose how you participate by deciding what participation level works for you.
