Course Spotlights

Spotlight Courses is an exciting new presentation series highlighting quality online courses at UAF. UAF eCampus’s Design Team has selected a handful of the best online courses that UAF has to offer and is giving UAF teachers access to explore these courses themselves. Two of the courses will be featured each month throughout the summer, and the UAF community will be invited to biweekly Q&A’s with the course instructors. Spotlight Courses are here to model and to inspire — explore on your own time or join us for a community conversation every other Friday throughout the summer.

Spotlight Course Q&A’s are at 10-11am on the third Friday of every month.

Community Seminars

Community Seminars in Teaching and Learning invites UAF teachers to learn from one another. Seminars are led by faculty who’ve had success with a particular aspect of or approach to teaching and learning — i.e. Contract-based Grading, Supporting Student Mental Health, Discovery-based Group Projects, and more. By discussing their experiences as well as topical resources and research with participants, teachers learn in community.

Community Seminars are online every other Tuesday at 1-2pm.
