One-on-One Appointments

Our instructional design team is available to meet with faculty individually about their courses. Currently, these meetings are happening through Google Meet. When we are back on campus, they can also occur in our Faculty Lab, located in Suite 430 of Kresge Library.

Typically, this type of meeting covers the following topics:

  • Services offered by e-LIS
  • Review of online pedagogy, with practical implementation tips
  • Moodle training options
  • Online learning best practices
  • The e-LIS course quality scorecard
  • Other resources that you can draw upon (such as exemplar online courses and faculty networking opportunities)
