June EV-Anar 
Your Class Roster: For more than just attendance

Creating a sense of community is so important in any modality.  Using your roster effectively can help you to support struggling students, create networking opportunities, and deepen learning experiences.

Join us as we explore some strategies for using your class roster to make meaningful connections with your students. Join during one of the following times: 

  • Tuesday, June 6th at 10:00 am ET
  • Tuesday, June 6th at 8:00 pm ET
  • Wednesday, June 7th at 2:00 pm ET

Let’s Continue the Discussion!

Join us on the RCTLE eUnion to continue the conversation. June’s discussion question will be:

How do you make connections with your students and extend their learning beyond the modules?

The RCTLE Receives a Grant from the POD Network to Offer Professional Development

Last year, your RCTLE was awarded a grant from The Professional and Organizational Network in Higher Education (POD) to begin a Virtual Community of Practice for ERAU Adjunct Instructors focused on improving teaching and learning in the online modality.

Recently, the RCTLE received another grant from POD to continue this collaborative opportunity. This optional RCTLE offering will be open to all ERAU faculty, both full-time and adjunct, and will focus on providing effective feedback to your students. We will share some excellent resources and will pilot some exciting new software during this experience. Later this summer, we will begin recruiting volunteers—so keep a lookout for more information.
