Location: Online

Presenters: Kenneth Rogers

Audience: Faculty

We gave you a sneak peak of Gradescope during the 2023 CITL Winter Workshop. But in case you missed it, you might be thinking “What is Gradescope?” Gradescope is a web-based tool to help streamline and standardize assessment of paper-based, digital, and coding assignments. What are just a few of the top advantages of using Gradescope? Gradescope uses AI-based handwriting analysis to organize submissions for faster grading, allows for on-the-fly rubric creation and feedback, and can automatically grade printed bubble sheets. 

Ready to learn more? We will hold two, one-hour fully remote sessions with Gradescope’s lead trainer, Kenneth Rogers, on February 10th at 10:00 a.m. and February 14th at noon. The sessions will cover how to get started and how to incorporate Gradescope into your teaching, with time for your questions.  Each session will cover the same material, so please come to the one that fits your schedule.

Immersive Learning is an experiential methodology that utilizes Virtual Reality (VR) to teach and train in a safe and engaging immersive environment by simulating real-world locations and scenarios.

Uptale is a web based authoring platform for creating your own custom immersive - and interactive - learning experiences. It requires no coding background and utilizes 360 video and imagery, along with a simple drag-and-drop approach, to make building VR experiences easy. Uptale is available to all Lehigh users, so even your students can learn, build, and share. In this hands-on workshop, learn how to get started with Uptale to start your journey with immersive learning. You'll also be able to test and explore what you've built using a VR headset.

Please use the registration link to RSVP in advance so that we can ensure that your own Uptale account is provisioned for you. Come with your own laptop (or just follow along!)
