The workshop starts at 10:50 a.m. and we kindly request participants attending via web conference enter the session at least 15 minutes prior to the start time and no later than 10:55 a.m. Late arrival and/or early exit from the workshop invalidates receiving credit. 


Online courses present unique challenges and opportunities for both instructors and students. In this presentation, Ozgur Ince will discuss his experience converting a large introductory finance course from in-person to both synchronous and asynchronous online delivery. He will discuss best online teaching practices based on his experience and recent pedagogy. He will introduce strategies educators can utilize to tackle common challenges facing online learners, such as time management, lack of motivation, lack of interaction, and lack of community. He will also discuss alternative methods of delivery, student engagement using various online tools (such as polls, breakout groups, chat, discussion boards) and online assignments. The session will conclude with a question-and-answer session.


** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.


If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.


Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive credit for the workshop in their training records. Late arrival and/or early exit from a workshop invalidates receiving credit. If technology issues require rescheduling of a workshop, participants must attend the workshop at the rescheduled time to receive credit. These policies apply to all CTE workshops/events, including workshops that qualify as requirements/electives for a certificate of completion.
