iTeach Online is a cohort-based workshop where faculty work on building their courses in the company of their peers. Attention to best practices, course alignment, student engagement and usability are emphasized. Synchronous sessions allow for cohort building and tool practice.
Though I’ve long practiced the technique of Object-Based Teaching (OBT) in face-to-face and online classrooms alike, I’d never really looked into the scholarship behind it until recently.

It turns out that there were some aspects of my practice I needed to modify.
This session is about finding ways to put new ideas into motion when time, resources, and energy are low. Let’s have a conversation about strategies you can employ to innovate during lean times.

We will also talk about the growing number of machine learning tools now available for processing and visualizing big data.
