Orientation Modules

DLINQ is excited to support summer language faculty across Middlebury’s campuses in their exploration of digital tools for teaching and learning.  To this end, we have created a self-paced online training. This resource, which can be reviewed any time before or after arrival on campus, centralizes the information you need to make use of curricular technology.

 

Session Breakdown & Schedule

In the event that faculty need additional support after having completed the online training, we have scheduled some on-ground and online sessions.

Drop-in Sessions

Description

These sessions may be attended by faculty who have completed the online training and who have lingering issues to resolve. The drop-in sessions are designed to assist faculty who continue to have questions regarding accessing curricular technology such as Course Hub and/or Canvas. There is no set curriculum — faculty who attend the drop-in sessions should come with specific questions related to accessing curricular tech.

Deep-dive Sessions

Description

These sessions may be attended by faculty who have completed the online training and who have successfully set up their curricular technology. The deep-dive sessions are designed to assist faculty who have questions about how to use Canvas and/or WordPress to support their teaching.
