Stand and Deliver: Training and Supporting Faculty Using Sakai at Claremont McKenna College

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

  • Benjamin Royas

Tuesday 4th June, 2013

10:00am to 10:45am (PST)

This presentation will take an in-depth look at the workshops and support services offered to faculty using Sakai at Claremont McKenna College (CMC). During each summer and winter break, CMC offers a series of workshops designed to promote Sakai and educate faculty on how to use Sakai's various tools for better teaching and learning. To complement these workshops, the office of Instructional Technology and Client Services offers faculty Sakai support and digitization services on a daily basis throughout the academic year. We've found that our workshop and support model has been highly successful for our liberal arts college. Please join us in this presentation to learn more about our model and walk away with best practices for offering Sakai workshops and effectively supporting faculty once the workshops are over.
