Skillshop logo

Academic Technology Skillshops are an additional resources for Carleton faculty to learn about software solutions, features, and practices through 30-minute videos based on live sessions. These Skillshops offer choices in using instructional technologies for different teaching and learning tasks and strategies.  

If you are new or returning to Carleton, please lean on us to explore how to think through the use of instructional technologies for your courses; if you have experience with some of these tools, please consider leveling up with skills and ideas offered in the Skillshops. (See the Panopto recordings below.)

In addition to the synchronous online conversations around instructional technology, we offer a Moodle course, Resilient Teaching with Technology. It contains deeper readings, activities to connect with colleagues, and asynchronous tutorials, both for your convenience and as a model to share with your learners.  (This +1 method of teaching is based in Thomas J. Tobin’s and Kirsten T. Behling’s Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education (2018), a guide to create more inclusive and equitable learning opportunities.)
