ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
If you are new to Zoom and want to build your skills for the virtual classroom, this session is for you. We will review Zoom features and check in on how using Zoom is impacting teaching and learning. Depending on the skill level and needs of participants we will “skill up” in such areas as hosting a meeting, using breakout rooms for small group activities, using the whiteboard and annotation features, sharing presentations and screens, and soliciting ongoing feedback. Other possible topics to include creating a positive online classroom culture and nurturing community in online spaces.
This free workshop is only available to CATDC Member Schools.
