Need replacement lecture ideas?

The recent natural disasters and road closures have made it difficult for faculty to lead in-class lectures.  If you or your students need an alternative way of attending class, consider utilizing GauchoCast and Zoom to put yourself and your lecture materials in front of your students.  We provide step-by-step instructions and videos for making the most of these innovative teaching technologies.  

How to get set up with your classroom technology

New instructor?  New classroom?  Stop by Media Equipment in Kerr 1160 to set up a login and password for general assignment classroom computers; check out a lectern key; and arrange for an Instructional Development staff member to do a "meet and greet" orientation to the equipment and lighting controls in the classroom(s) in which you will be teaching.
