This is the first edition in what I’m referring to as the “Maker Space Online” series–a set of short videos sharing the basic elements of teaching strategies. Examples are included for you to use as a guide for creating activities in your course–regardless of your teaching modality!
This week’s edition shares an adaptable formula to create timely, relevant discussions in your course! If you have questions about implementing this or other ideas in your course, please email the Ferris eLearning Design team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
