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.

We introduce digital project resources available to you and your students and discuss simple tips for taking current assignments digital, designing new digital assignments, and even how your digital assignment might meet the student learning objectives for a Digital Intensive course.
