Online & Remote Instruction for Quantitative Disciplines Round Table

Faculty within quantitatively based disciplines may have difficulties such as how to handle student submissions of problems or calculations, how to provide feedback on this work, and how to use technology to replicate a "blackboard" for writing out problems in a synchronous environment or asynchronous videos. This round table will provide an opportunity for faculty to engage in a conversation surrounding their unique challenges and solutions they have developed. A survey will be sent closer to the event to all registered participants to help focus the discussion of the first meeting of the round table. 

Monday, August 17th, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

BluePulse Pilot - Student Engagement & Feedback Tool Demo 

CTAAR is running a pilot of a new tool called BluePulse for collecting informal feedback from students.  This provides a way to "take the pulse" of your class and will be available for all instructors to use in the fall. This is a pilot with BluePulse being available through Spring 2021. BluePulse is a simple tool to ask one question at a time and collect anonymous feedback from students.  You can also respond to students comments in follow-up dialogues. More information is available on our website:  Please consider attending the demo if you are interested in using the tool to engage your students in Fall 2020. 

Wednesday, August 12th from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Managing Zoom Sessions

Due to high demand, we have opened additional "Managing Zoom Session" trainings!

It order to efficiently run the sessions, we recorded a 30-minute presentation which we ask that you watch prior to the session. It contains screen shots of the controls and explanations for how to set up meetings, manage Zoom security, build and launch polls, and create breakout rooms. Here is the link:

It is important that you watch the video prior to enrolling in a session, because we will not be reviewing the video content in each session. Instead, the sessions will consist of a Q&A followed by hands-on training where we will practice together.

To learn more and register for a hand-on practice session, please go to (you must be signed in to Canvas to view the page). If you have trouble registering for the session, please email for assistance.
