Canvas: Assignments & Discussions

Tuesday, 5/21 (12:00-12:45) in Zoom

These Canvas tools allow you to engage your students with both formative and summative assessment.

  • Explore the many types of assessments you can offer your students through the Canvas Assignment tool, like paper uploads, worksheet annotation, link submissions, and more. We’ll also take a look at group assignments and peer review.
  • Engaging students with the Canvas Discussion tool can help your online classroom come alive—or allow classroom discussions to overflow into virtual space.

We will review the basics of using each tool and discuss potential uses in your courses.

Canvas: Grades & Speedgrader

Wednesday, 5/22 (12:00-12:45) in Zoom

This session will feature a ‘how-to’ of setting up your Canvas Grades, including weighted course grade calculation. Say good-bye to downloading and uploading student assignments! Speedgrader allows you to provide meaningful feedback to students, including annotations on their submission, directly from Canvas. We’ll take a look at the options for you to record audio or video feedback as well.

Canvas: Prepping your course site

Thursday, 5/23 (12:00-12:45) in Zoom

This workshop will highlight some of the most helpful ‘to-do’s before making your site available to students, whether you’re copying content from a previous semester or starting from scratch. Join us to help ensure your course site is ready to go and set up for success!

Sign up to attend one or more of these May 2024 sessions here.

Collaborative Learning tools

Thursday 6/20 (12-12:45) in Zoom

Promote a community of inquiry in your classroom to foster a strong sense of belonging. Using tools like Hypothesis (social annotation of course readings), YellowDig (social media-style chat), Flip (chat via phone video), Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive, you’ll create or re-design a classroom activity.

Interactive Lecture tools

Tuesday 6/25 (12-12:45) in Zoom

Engage students in active learning, whether online or in the classroom. Tools we’ll review may include PlayPosit (add an interactive layer over your video), interactive whiteboard tools, and polling tools like Slido and Kahoot. Whatever your lecture style, online or in the classroom, you’ll update a lecture by adding student input.

Multimodal Student Presentation tools

Thursday 6/27 (12-12:45) in Zoom

Encourage students to create exciting solo or collaborative projects, using audio, video, graphics, and/or text to allow authentic assessment of their learning. Explore tools including VoiceThread, Canva, and Adobe Express. You’ll update an assignment to encourage students to engage with each other and with these rich-content tools.

Sign up for June 2024 sessions here.



Previously-recorded workshop videos

If you’re happiest with recorded sessions, feel free to watch some of our most popular recorded webinars:

Faculty eLearning Conference

The inaugural Faculty eLearning Conference on April 29, 2014 started an annual tradition of celebrating great teaching and learning at Rutgers–Camden. IDT hosted the one-day conference under the auspices of the provost from 2014-2019 in person at the Campus Center, with a full schedule of faculty presentations about their teaching challenges, innovations, and successes. In 2020, during the pandemic, we hosted a fully-online version of the conference. Since then, the conference has been on hold, but we have high hopes for a re-launch!

Information from previous years is available from our Past Conferences page.

Digital Teaching Fellows

In an initiative inspired by Dean Kris Lindenmeyer of FAS, the first cohort of DT Fellows was selected in the spring of 2014—and all four of our Camden deans continued their support of this transformative program.  Over the years, the Fellows explored new classroom technologies such as untethered projection from iPads, high-def classroom recording, interactive apps, and other engaging tools. We enjoyed robust debate about pedagogical applications of technology and how best to transform the classroom into an engaging, interactive learning environment for students. Previous Fellows contributed in subsequent years with presentations based on their own experiences with applying new ideas in the classroom.
