Workshop Schedule for All Modes

Digital Learning Services offers comprehensive workshops that focus on the tools and resources that Arcadia provides. Our workshops are updated prior to the beginning of the semester. 

This is a great opportunity to learn more information about Instructional Technology and Instructional Design.  All workshops are presented by DLS and IT Department members. New workshops have been added for all Arcadia employees to learn more about security and utilizing the tools available to you as an Arcadia Faculty or Staff member.

We are very happy to be delivering many high-quality workshops for the Arcadia community this semester. Please sign up here for the events you plan to attend (all workshops will be held on Zoom).

  • Dan Levy, author of ‘Teaching Effectively with Zoom’ (February 12, 2021) Watch the webinar recording 
    • The goal of this session is to help educators teach effective live online sessions using Zoom. It offers practical pedagogical advice on questions such as:
      • Why and how to use breakout rooms?
      • Should you use chat, and if so, how?
      • How do you build community in a virtual classroom?
      • Why and how to use polling?
    • ​The book, Teaching Effectively with Zoom’, is based on the author’s own experience teaching online, observations of several colleagues teaching online at Harvard University and elsewhere, research-based principles of effective teaching and learning, tips from the readers of the first edition of the book, and, perhaps just as importantly, interviews with dozens of students who have had to adapt to online learning.
