Hello Faculty:

To follow-up on the great work that Academic Technology (Glenn Saito & Scott Hines) has done in helping faculty *technically* prepare for the transition to online teaching (see: Moving Classes Online), The Center for Educational Excellence has developed a new page to support you in your *online pedagogy*Online Pedagogy Resources

Encompassed in this page is as follows:

Resources for Transitioning Online

PAU Zoom Tips

PAU Canvas Tips

Besides Assignments and Gradebook, Canvas can be useful for organizing our online (and in-person) courses, making materials structured and accessible. Here are four course design tips to develop a student-friendly Canvas course:

1. Homepage

2. Uploaded Syllabus 

3. Faculty Bio + Picture

4. Modules (Per Class)

See NEW & SHORT Canvas Video detailing these four tips here.

(Note: Make sure to contact Glenn (gsaito@paloaltou.edu) or Canvas support if you need help setting-up your Canvas course!)

You might also want to consider registering for ACES' FREE, special edition webinar: Moving Counseling Instruction Online, taking place on Monday, March 16th, 1 PM EST. This might be worth attending even if you're not a counseling educator. If interested, register here

As usual, I am available to discuss pedagogy. Please feel free to reach out anytime. 

Best, Kristel
