How do I use the virtual workshops in my class?
Each virtual workshop is an eLearning module. Because they are eLearning modules, they are designed to be completed independently (but can also be completed as a group), and consist of a combination of video clips and interactive activities to keep students engaged. Each module will take students about 20-30 minutes if completed independently. There are several different ways you can use the modules in your class, depending on your preferences.
- Option 1 – Out of Class Completion: Add it to your course as an assignment which student complete outside of class. This option requires no class time and no adjustments to your existing curriculum.
- Option 2 – In Class Completion: Take a class period to lead students through the module as a class. A complete guide is provided for each module that details in-class facilitation with activity and discussion options for each interactive slide, and includes the materials required for activities. The guide is structured in a way to allow you to facilitate the content without needing expertise in those topics.
- Option 3 – In Class Follow-Up: Assign the module to be completed outside of class, and devote in-class time to follow-up. Each module comes with 4-5 in-class activity or discussion options. Detailed faculty instructions and all required materials are provided for each activity or discussion, again allowing you to facilitate any of them regardless of expertise in the topic.
- Option 4 – Expand upon with Assignments: Have students complete the module in or out of class, follow-up in class or not, and have students further process the material or build upon their knowledge by utilizing one of the corresponding assignment options that are provided for each module. Faculty instructions, student instructions, and all required materials are provided.
