Winter Workshop 2021

You are here

About the event 

This year the CITL Winter Workshop, like everything else right now, will look a bit different.  On Tuesday, Jan. 19 we'll provide the opportunity for you to hear from Lehigh students - both undergraduate and graduate - about their experiences learning online during Fall 2020. On Thursday, we'll follow up with sessions on three specific pedagogical topics - lecture, engagement, and assessment - and provide opportunities for you to hear from CITL staff and your faculty peers on each.  Finally, on Friday, we'll host several open drop-in sessions for you to bring your questions for Instructional Technology Consultants, CITL Leadership, Outreach and Instruction Librarians, and Digital Scholarship team members.  At each session, we will share lessons learned, discuss new tools and approaches, and offer recommendations for teaching and learning in Spring 2021.
