 September
  • Q&A for New Online Teachers 
    This informal Q&A session is a great chance for new online teachers to ask questions, meet the online training staff, and connect with your colleagues. We hope you will join us!

Wednesday, 9/18, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.

  • Engaging Your Absent/Silent/Invisible Students  |  Space is limited! RSVP to jmichael@academyart.edu 
    Do you have students who mostly "lurk" in your online class, participating only minimally—if at all? How about students who don't post at all in the discussion until a few minutes before the module closes? Join Jenny Michael and Molly Flanagan to learn about practical strategies for getting your students more involved in your weekly discussions. 

Tuesday, 9/24, 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
Wednesday, 9/25, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.

October
  • Teaching How to Learn  |  Space is limited!  RSVP to jmichael@academyart.edu      
    High performing students have created, consciously or unconsciously, strategies for success. Beyond the requisite skills and information of a given discipline, they are aware of how they are learning and thinking, and they are self-regulating about how they approach any process. This higher awareness and self-regulating behavior is called metacognition—and it can be taught! Join Scot Crisp for this workshop on helping students (and you) develop metacognitive skills. 

Tuesday, 10/15, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
Wednesday, 10/16, 9:00 - 10:30 a.m.

  • Helping Students Conquer Procrastination  |  Space is limited!  RSVP to jmichael@academyart.edu
    Join Kevin Koczela in exploring students' attitudes and behaviors that lead to chronic procrastination in class. We will review early warning signs that a student is likely to turn work in late. We will also discuss strategies psychologists recommend for counseling and managing students who habitually put work off to the last minute.

Wednesday, 10/30, 3:00 - 4:30 p.m.
Thursday, 10/31, 9:00 - 10:30 a.m.
