Design Challenge: Promoting honesty in your online learning environments

Fostering academic integrity in an online environment entails more than just making sure your students don’t cheat or plagiarize. Shared conversations can help educate students about our (shared) responsibilities in creating an honest, legitimate learning environment. This one-hour webinar will look at how to design your online learning environment to address academic integrity and investigate a range of ways to structure your assignments and use Canvas tools to help guide students toward making good choices online.

Teaching with Writing: A practical seminar for faculty

The annual Teaching with Writing seminar offers a unique, retreat-like opportunity for busy instructors who would like to take a little time in advance of the next academic year to focus on the ways they approach writing in their teaching. We take a case-study approach. Each participant focuses on one course they teach, and because we define writing broadly to include words, numbers, figures, and visuals, our discussions are relevant and pragmatic to courses across the University curriculum.

Course Sharing Beyond CourseShare

Participation in Big Ten CourseShare is growing, but it’s only part of the picture of how university instructors are using technology to share their language beyond the Twin Cities (TC) campus. During 2018-2019, with the support of the Classics and American Indian departments, TC and Morris launched a pilot intersystem exchange, in which first-year Dakota and second-year Latin courses were sent from TC to Morris. This pilot was successful, with a small number of Latin students from Morris enrolling Fall semester, and about equal numbers TC and Morris students in Dakota both semesters.
