Quercus for Teaching and Learning: Effective Q-Design and Q-Engagement

January 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST


January 23
10:00 am - 12:00 pm


This workshop will provide information to begin building a Quercus course. You will explore some of the key features and tools through demos and hands-on activities, and share pedagogically sound best practices on how to effectively use these tools when designing Quercus courses and engaging students. We will examine strategies for effectively organizing and structuring course content using Modules and Pages. Participants will be also introduced to tools that allow for student interactions and collaborations such as Discussions, group assignments, using Pages as a wiki tool and peer assessment.
