Note: registration helps us collect advance input from you, to finalize session content.

Overview

For the Fall semester, our faculty is teaching three types of learners: in-person learners; synchronous online learners and asynchronous learners. This demands proficiency in appropriate technology to ensure student-learning for each of the three categories of students.

 

CLT's November Q&A sessions have been designed with the following goals:

  1. Providing consistent, regular and speedy support to faculty for dealing with the unique technological and pedagogical challenges for fall teaching.

  2. Ensuring the necessary familiarity with the campus LMS (Moodle) & other accessible technologies like MS Teams, Zoom, etc.

  3. Enabling faculty to optimally use technology to fulfill their pedagogical and instructional tasks.​

See below for the topics and key learning objectives of each session. The topics for the sessions  have been based on your queries sent to ITS and CLT. The content of the sessions will be further tailored in keeping with your queries shared in the registration form and also the queries posed during the sessions. 

Flexible Participation in Sessions of Your Choice

You can pick and choose any session/s to attend based on your interests and needs. Each session will be approximately 40 mins and will count as professional development for FCC faculty, depending on the duration your participation (note: HEC requires all faculty to attend 36 hours of professional development annually).
