Teaching and Learning

Final Week to Sign up for EdTech Cohort

New full-time faculty, there is still time to sign up for the EdTech Cohort! Email Mara at to sign up by next Friday, October 7.

This unique opportunity will be composed of three 90 minute face-to-face sessions (3:30-5:00 p.m. on 10/20, 11/3, and 11/17) with online activities scheduled during the intervening weeks. The goal is to familiarize new faculty with strategies for integrating Moodle and other learning technologies with their individual teaching approach. Activities will encourage participants to incorporate new strategies into their teaching preparation to avoid significantly increasing their workload.

A stipend of $200 will be awarded upon successful completion of the cohort. Any new full-time (tenure track or continuing special appointments) faculty who have joined Augsburg in the last two years are eligible to join the cohort.
