Dear GT Computing community,
In case no one has brought this up, I’d like to start today by encouraging everyone once again to wear masks, socially distance, get tested weekly, and to encourage your students to do all of those things as well. Case numbers on campus have drifted up slightly. Mind you, they’re not at worrisome levels, but I suspect we’d all like to continue to do the remarkable job of containing Covid that we have so far, and finish the semester strong.
On another note, the Institute has recently announced a series of workshops to help faculty members and TAs make the most of the educational technology available. I know that we are all working to hone our online teaching practices and processes, and you might find these workshops helpful:
- Understanding Learner Engagement: Kaltura Analytics
Tuesday, Oct. 20 at 11 a.m.- 12 p.m. with Claudio Di Leo
- Engagement and Social Annotation with Perusall
Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. with Jason Freeman
- Engagement with Turning Point and Question Polling
Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 1 – 2 p.m. with Pamela Pollett and Mary Lynn Realff
- Should I (and how do I) use Digital Proctoring?
Thursday, Oct. 29 at 1 – 2 p.m. with David Joyner and Wayne Whiteman
All of these workshops are being taught online at the same BlueJeans link.
Finally, I’d like to remind everyone that there is still some time to make your voices heard. If you live in Fulton County, you should know that McCamish Pavilion will be an early voting site for the county on October 22 and 23. If you have questions, you should check out the Institute’s voter information webpage.
Do your thing.
