Faculty Instructional Resources and Support
CTLT provides faculty with essential training and workshops in instructional technologies, advising resources, professional development, hybrid and distance teaching and learning, and other support areas, so faculty can concentrate on providing the quality teaching to Shenandoah students.
We’re Moving! All courses and organizations should be moved to Canvas by May 1, 2016. Faculty and Staff should plan to archive any content needed for accreditation, for faculty contract portfolios, and grade centers by that date as well.
Canvas will be used to run courses starting Summer I, 2016 and we will no longer have access to Blackboard July 1, 2016. The period May 1-June 30 is reserved for testing, so all content needs to be moved prior. Please start now. Transition Timeline and Training Schedule.
Advisors should attend EAB SSC training prior to advising students. The Registrar’s Office has produced a video tutorial – linked on our Advising Resources page and on the Registrar’s Blackboard Site – for advisors to use when instructing students on the new system.
CTLT also provides faculty workshops and training on a variety of topics including digital humanities, using technology, e-portfolio creation, and more.
Don’t see the workshop you want? Have a workshop idea? No worries! Just email us (email@example.com) to discuss planning a workshop.
In collaboration with the Faculty Senate, CTLT is proud to present the Post-Sabbatical Colloquium Series each spring. Faculty who were on sabbatical last year share their work and sabbatical experiences.
Each 1-hour talk also serves as faculty development for junior faculty who are encouraged to attend.Colloquium RSVP
Our Resource Repository contains help files and video tutorials on a variety of topics including Learning Management. Currently there are more than 30 specific resources and help files available and we add to the repository frequently.
The CTLT is comprised of the Transformative Teaching and Learning team led by Dr. Anne Marchant, and the Academic Computing Technologies team led by Dr. Richard Pierce.
Transformative Teaching and Learning
The Transformative Teaching and Learning team (TTL) works to improve student learning outcomes and academic success by providing pedagogical support in areas such as hybrid teaching, distance education, and collaborative and experiential learning as well as coordination and support for academic advising. TTL also provides support and instruction for a number of instructional technologies.
Academic Computing Technology
The Academic Computing Technology team (ACT) helps faculty maneuver through in-class technologies such as SmartBoards and other classroom presentation technologies including audio/visual hardware. ACT is responsible for bridging the virtual gap between the NVC and Winchester campuses. Additionally, ACT coordinates and troubleshoots video teleconferencing software and hardware.
