Teaching Tools:  Using Sakai Lessons to Frame Course Content 

Monday, December 5, 2016

10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Phillips Memorial Library 233​​

Martha Lang, Visiting Assistant Professor in Sociology 
Kathleen Cornely, Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry 
Julie DeCesare, Instructional Technology Development Program Coordinator 
Adam Villa, Associate Director, Center for Teaching Excellence

Join your colleagues for a workshop on the Lessons tool in Sakai and get a sneak peek at Lessons in Sakai 11.

Sakai Lessons allows faculty to present course content in a structured way and guide students through the learning process.  Using the Lessons tool, you can create context with resources, quizzes, assignments, forums, and media (e.g. video, audio, and image) in a central location.  Lessons can also be a platform for student created pages and peer review.  Martha Lang, Visiting Assistant Professor in Sociology, and Kathleen Cornely, Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry, will share their impressions and uses of Lessons, followed by a hands on workshop and overview of the tool with ITDP.​​ RSVP here.
