Online Collaboration/Blended Learning Tools

First Friday Coffee and Conversations will inspire faculty to enhance the classroom experience by exploring tools that increase student engagement.

Where & When

For the first time ever, First Friday Coffee & Conversations will be virtual! Join us next week, Monday April 2nd through Friday April 6th for conversations on Online Collaboration. Unfortunately, you will need to supply your own coffee. We will discuss online collaboration tools, brainstorm ways to use them in your courses, and how these tools can help increase student engagement. We are using a Canvas course to help keep us organized, and the discussions highlight the several collaborative tools that will be facilitated by a subject matter expert. Participants are encouraged to engage in the overall discussion as well as review and participate in any or all of the discussions provided. We encourage everyone to visit the course throughout the week and subscribe to the discussion threads that interest you. To join the conversations, please enroll in the FFC&C Canvas course found here: (the conversations will not open until Monday morning at 8am).
