The Empowering Teaching Excellence E-Learning Workshop is sponsored by the Center for Innovative Design and Instruction (CIDI) and Academic and Instructional Services (AIS).
This three-day event provides a hands-on deep dive into the teaching tools and methodologies of online, broadcast, blended, and flipped instruction. Day 1 features sessions on e-learning pedagogy and course mapping, with in-session, peer-supported work time. Day 2 features breakout sessions on technology tools followed by interactive sessions on student engagement. Day 3 features sessions on course implementation and assessment practices, with opportunities to provide feedback to USU's e-learning instructional support team on current initiatives.
The lunches and the company are great, but enrollment is capped at 30, so apply early.

"I learned so many practical things and got a chance to think about some of the big issues as well. It is really encouraging that the university clearly values this kind of teaching by its regular faculty; I feel it signals an important way in which USU is different from a lot of higher-ed institutions in its commitment to giving faculty the tools they need and the opportunities they want to progress in their careers as teachers (even when they are research-primary in their appointments)."

"Just bending my head around the demands of a non-traditional classroom was the biggest thing I got out of the workshop, especially what to import from the face-to-face version of my class, and more important, what not to. What I learned was that online and distance students need my time and attention the same way students in a traditional classroom do...but having experts sitting next to me, listening to my goals and struggles, and showing me how to surmount obstacles helped enormously."
- Mark Damen, Professor, Department of History
