DidUknow: Teaching with Moodle Workshop May 6th-7th 2015

We are inviting 8 participants to join in a free two-day Moodle workshop on May 6th-7th. Register for a new professional development opportunity and take your class beyond the classroom. Designed to provide a good foundation and context to Moodle, the course covers multiple aspects of the Moodle learning platform, including how to set up your Moodle class and effectively use it in teaching.

This course features:

  • Structured, easy-to-understand content. Gain information, training, and tools.
  • Collaboration and connections. Contribute in round table discussions.
  • Activity-based learning. Participants create their own course.

Who should attend?

Whether it is your first time using Moodle or you already have a basic understanding of this content management system, this workshop will give you hands-on experience with many of the Moodle activities and resources. Working with your peers, you will build and deploy modules and see the results live. Additionally, you will receive instructor supported lab time to work on your Moodle class. Depending on how prepared you come, you could be well on your way to having a finished Moodle course.
