Workshops, Group Discussions and Projects - Fall 2019

Workshops, projects and group discussions are presented by Academic Technology's Instructional Designers and other instructors from within the Lane community. They are designed to be short, informative, hands-on sessions or discussions covering various technologies and pedagogies as they relate to instruction. While most sessions are geared for instructors teaching online/hybrid courses, many, if not all topics will enrich all teaching practices. For more information contact us at

Fall 2019 Schedule

Where did summer go?! It was a good summer and we ran several successful projects including the Ally Accessibility Project and the summer cohort of Teaching Pairs: Improving Your Online Course

We are busy setting up for fall term. We will post the schedule here and in the Lane Weekly ASAP.

Workshop Descriptions 

The following list contains descriptions of our F2F workshops.

Online Course Development or Redevelopment Orientation
Instructors: ID Services Team. Are you interested in developing a new online course or redeveloping a current online course? Come to LaneOnline Course Development Orientation! This one-hour orientation will review the course development process, design framework, how to apply for funding, and answer general questions. (1 hr, presentation/discussion)

Zoom: Meeting Your Students Where They're At
Instructor: Kevin Steeves. Meet students and colleagues where they are at with Zoom. Zoom is a web-conferencing software that can be used for synchronous online meetings and virtual office hours. Other uses we've seen are online tutoring, online advising sessions, screencasting (recording your computer desktop with audio) and recording lectures. Explore the tool, practice creating and joining sessions, and asking questions that come up. All workshops are located in the Academic Technology Center classroom, Center building, room 219. (2 hrs, hands-on workshop)

Screencasting: Create a "Welcome” Video For Your Online Course
Instructor: tbd. Screencasting is a form of computer video that allows viewers to see recordings of your computer screen, complete with audio narration. Deliver once and allow your students to revisit presentation as often as needed. In this workshop you will create a ‘Welcome to’ video as an introduction to your online or hybrid course. We will be using Screencast-O-Matic. All workshops are located in the Academic Technology Center classroom, Center building, room 219. (1.5 hr, hands-on workshop)

H5P: Creating Interactive Content For Your Online Courses
Instructor: Meredith Keene. H5P is a Moodle plugin that allows people to create simple yet powerful interactive content all without writing a line of code. The most popular content types are Interactive Video and Course Presentation. H5P empowers everyone to create, share and reuse interactive content - all you need is a web browser and a web site (Moodle) that supports H5P. This is a new technology for Lane. Join us in exploring the possibilities. (2 hrs, hands-on workshop)

Universal Design and Accessibility for Online Courses
Instructor: Meredith Keene. As a Lane CC faculty or staff member you want to ensure that courses, webpages and learning materials are accessible to all learners. This may include offering alternative formats of instructional materials, making students aware of Lane's disability policy and/or guiding students to the Center for Accessible Resources [CAR]. This hands on workshop will help get you started in analyzing and/or creating universally designed courses and providing accessible documents. (1.5 hrs, both presentation and hands-on workshop)

This workshop is offered F2F (face-to-face) and online. You may self-enroll in the Moodle online workshop at

Online Pedagogy Discussion Groups
Facilitator: Jen Kepka
Academic Technology is sponsoring a series of discussion groups this term around effective methods of and issues in online teaching and learning. All Lane faculty (FT and PT) are invited to participate in these sessions. During weeks 4, 8, and 10, the groups will meet in person (and there will be food!); weeks 5, 7, and 9 will be held online (enjoy your own food!).

Readings for the groups will be posted and sent to participants at least a week in advance. To facilitate this, registration is required but will be open until filled (through the day before each session).

Faculty who participate in three sessions (either online or in person) will receive a "prize" from our Academic Technology equipment check-out cabinet: the long-term loan of an item related to online teaching or learning. Everyone who participates in at least one session will be entered to "win" the long-term loan of a new Macbook air computer.
