Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) Workshop

Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) are simple, anonymous, non-graded activities that provide feedback to instructors and students alike on the teaching-learning process. This workshop covers the basics of CATs, how to digitize common CATs for classes of all sizes, and will allow participants the opportunity to design their own CATs for their lessons.

Classroom Technology (in-person/ online)

Workshop Learning Outcomes
By the end of this workshop, attendees will:
- be able to identify the major components and spaces of the A/V systems that enable the classrooms to support simultaneous in-person and online synchronous instruction, e.g., A/V Bridge to Zoom, in-class screens, ceiling microphones, etc., and how to use them.
- be able to identify how to adapt in-class teaching approaches to also engage students in the online synchronous modalities (i.e., synchronous in-class and online). - know how to access help and learn more, including when and how to further experiment with the room technology

Navigating security in online classrooms: Q&A with WTS and CTL

Remote meeting platforms such as Zoom offer instructors opportunities for student engagement and interaction. Using these tools effectively includes the ability to mitigate potential security risks that may arise. In this session, Western Technology Services (WTS) and Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) will present various security settings in Zoom. Significant time will be dedicated to questions and conversation on integrating these settings into your teaching context as well as debriefing security incidents in the classroom.
