Remote Recess

Take a Break with Colleagues and Learn Something Too!

Remote Recess sessions offer an opportunity for faculty to gather online and learn something new in a low-stakes, casual, and FUN way. Each session will focus on a topic (like Panopto) and a short demo, then the facilitator will open the session to Q&A. Participants are encouraged to share tips and tricks. These sessions are designed to help you decide how and when to use certain technologies and activities.

Become a Presenter

The best way we can support each other is to share what we’ve learned about teaching with technology with our colleagues. Got a tip or technique you’d like to show your colleagues? Let us know!
