In addition to the Summer 2020 Stipend for Fall 2020 Course Conversion, there are several alternative support options available to faculty who are converting face-to-face courses to an online format.
Adapt 2020 (Virtual Conference): From Remote to Online Learning
Various departments across campus including UNCG Online, ITS: Learning Technology, Academic ITCs, and UTLC: Teaching Innovation Center are working together to create a virtual conference for all UNCG faculty called ADAPT 2020 to prepare for all possibilities during the upcoming fall semester. This virtual conference will be conducted synchronously online through Zoom June 8-12, 2020 providing faculty with technology training and course development assistance. Sessions will also be recorded to review the information after the event.
An important part of this event will be presentations from our current online faculty members to use this event to help others who do not have extensive online experience. Please consider submitting a proposal for this conference and attending.
These individual consultations with your departmental academic ITC, ITS Learning Technologies, UNCG Online, or UTLC assist with specific concerns regarding your course.
Three Meeting Consultation
Targeted for those faculty who have taught online before, UNCG Online helps you think through your course conversion and assists you in developing a plan to execute.
More Info: Contact UNCG Online to learn more and schedule a consultation.
Growing With Canvas
This five-module course is designed to help UNCG faculty learn how to use Canvas effectively in their courses. This course uses a mixture of videos, documentation, discussion, and activities to explore Canvas features. Along the way, faculty will earn Growing with Canvas badges to demonstrate their accomplishments. This entire course can be completed in five to ten hours, or roughly one to two hours per module.
More Info: Visit Growing With Canvas to get started.
Group workshops will be offered on a variety of topics related to online instruction. As workshops become available they will be added to workshops.uncg.edu.
More Info: Visit workshops.uncg.edu to view available sessions.
Faculty who are experienced in online teaching may serve as peer mentors to those with less experience teaching online. Connect with your peers to post questions, answer questions from others, arrange to meet offline, and generally pursue various ways you might help each other as you move your course online.
More Info: Join a peer assistance instructor group.
UNC System Trainings
The UNC System offers support to faculty transitioning their courses to the online format. They are also offering a Designing Effective Online Courses workshop from July 6 to July 17 for all system schools.
