Going Digital: A Faculty Workshop Series on Creating Digital Assignments
Whether you want to turn a journaling assignment into weekly blog posts, a paper into a podcast, or a class presentation into a video project, there are free, beginner-friendly tools available to help make it happen. And we help! Learn how Digital Learning Support and the Digital Knowledge Center provide faculty and student support through the whole process, from design to implementation to evaluation.

The Digital Side of Your Classroom
Any course – whether face-to-face, fully online, or somewhere in between – can leverage digital tools to expand and enhance the classroom experience. Discover new features and new ways to use common tools (like Canvas, Zoom, and Screencast-o-Matic) and potentially unfamiliar ones (like Discord and Hypothesis) to increase student engagement and encourage students to invest in your classroom community.
