e-Learning Design Workshop

CLT’s e-Learning Team is holding an e-Learning Design Workshop on Friday, October 24th from 9:00 am to noon. This will be a hands-on workshop held in the LSC B2087 computer lab and will focus on e-learning design, strategies and best practices.

There will be presentations on the hour followed by hands-on sessions where you can consult with members of CLT’s e-Learning Team or work with the faculty support specialist from the Library’s Instructional Tech team to build components of your course.

We encourage you to have an existing BbLearn course space to work on during the hands-on components. The focus of the session is to give you the opportunity to work on your course and discuss your ideas with the facilitators.

There will also be time for questions and answers throughout the morning. This is an informal session where you can attend the entire morning or drop in as your time permits.

This e-learning design workshop is for instructors and staff who are involved in the development of online course spaces and resources. Whether you are new to e-learning design or experienced and looking for new ideas, we encourage you to attend and/or to invite your colleagues.


The goal of the workshop is to provide you with some tools, strategies, and information for building effective and engaging online courses.
