Happy Fourth of July from your RCTLE! This month, we have several professional development opportunities for ERAU-W faculty. During the EV-Anar, we will be discussing how to effectively use announcements to engage students in your course. We will also host our monthly office hours and as always we are available at any time for individual consultations. We can’t wait to “see” you during one of our live events this month!

Teaching Tip

Cartoon: Did you know you can add videos to your Annoucements? You can add existing videos to enrigh your content or you can create your own! This is a great way to connect with and support your students!
For more information on how to add videos to your announcements, check out this Canvas Guide!

July EV-Anar: Creating Effective Announcements

Are your course announcements dull? Do your students even read them? No worries! You can change all that. To spice up your course announcements, join Dr. Lisa Martino, Faculty Development Instructor from the Rothwell Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence. She will discuss effective strategies to get your students’ attention and promote engagement.

By watching this EV-Anar, you will get two strategies for the very low price of only 20 minutes of your time.

  • Tuesday, July 25th at 10:00 am ET
  • Tuesday, July 25th at 8:00 pm ET
  • Thursday, July 27th at 2:00 pm ET
