Welcome back Northwest faculty!

Welcome back to campus Northwest faculty!  The Learning & Teaching Center staff spent the summer preparing for the fall 2018 term.  We are excited to begin supporting and working with faculty.

Join us this fall for our new professional development series of workshops.  Some are online and can be taken whenever and wherever works best for you.  Our newest addition will be the upcoming .EDU Conference hosted on our campus by the Northwest Learning & Teaching Center and Northwest Online September 24.  Check out the activities at http://www.nwmissouri.edu/dotedu/.

There are a variety of new updates to Northwest Online (Canvas) for you to explore for use in your courses.  The new quizzing feature is one that should provide some great new functionalities.

You spoke and we listened! For several years instructors expressed concerns over the inflexibility of the software being used for end of course Student Reflections. After researching several potential evaluation software options, we selected EvaluationKIT based upon several of its features you can read about in the EvaluationKIT article.

We will also be integrating a new grade pass-through feature to be used for all grade collections including 5 week, mid-term, 11 week, and final grades.  Check out how this will save faculty time in our article about grade pass-through.

Take time to read all of our short articles focused on learning, teaching, and technology.  As always, please contact us if you should need any assistance during this fall 2018 term.  Have a great semester!
