Professional Development Opportunities
Our adjunct committee and work groups are working hard to put together more professional development opportunities in a variety of modalities. The following are available immediately:
- Moodle training
Interested in using Moodle? Ron Coller offers training session (one-on-one or group).
- Advanced Moodle design
Would you like to add some visual appeal to your Moodle course? Not sure how or where to begin? Contact Tammy Douglas for assistance, tips, tricks and other Moodle fun.

Want to upgrade your course content, change out assignments or assessments, or improve engagement with students? Contact Tammy Douglas to set up a time to discuss various ways in which to apply instructional design techniques to upgrade your course.
Yammer is an internal social media option for information sharing and discussion. A special Adjunct Faculty section has been set up to collect and post adjunct specific items. If you are interested in learning more, contact Tammy Douglas or check out this How To guide.
