This week’s post highlights upcoming face-to-face and online CTL workshops. To register for these workshops look for the course codes given in the post and go to MVConnect. This month we recognize and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with this year’s theme being Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation. In light of this theme, you will find professional development articles and webinars from other higher learning institutions which focus on inclusivity to help support students and faculty.
This six (6) week asynchronous course highlights options for saving students money by replacing expensive textbooks with low-cost or no-cost options. Along with library resources and other cost saving measures, participants will explore open educational resources; class resources that are freely available to students and freely editable by faculty. It also provides an opportunity to explore these textbook alternatives, plan for integrating this material into courses, and identify and develop effective strategies for presenting this new content.
