Feb 2022 MiraCosta Faculty Online Support 💥now with weekly challenges!

February is already here! Still polishing your class design and online teaching skills? There are so many great opportunities and resources!

First I want to highlight something 💥 brand spanking new 💥 . Our MiraCosta Online Mentor faculty and instructional designer are putting together a series of weekly challenges to be held throughout this spring!

  • Each challenge will enable you to make a small but important improvement to your classes
  • Each challenge is designed to require no more than 3 hours of your time
  • You are welcome to participate as much or little as you like
  • The challenges will be based in our new MiraCosta Teaching Collaborative space in Canvas (feel free to take a peek!)
  • The first challenge will start on Feb. 7 – look for more info coming soon!

Beyond that, I invite you to check out our TIC home page which includes essential information for any MiraCosta faculty member teaching using online technologies. It now includes:

Finally, a reminder that Student Online Academic Readiness workshops are continuing this week and next – please share the schedule and signup form with your students if you’d like to encourage them to attend a one hour workshop where they will get tips on Zoom, Canvas, time management, online library resources, and all the amazing forms of support that MiraCosta provides to them online.
