Learn What’s New in Moodle

submitted by tensen@augsburg.edu

In response to requests from faculty, this year’s Moodle is more visually appealing and user-friendly than ever before, featuring drop-down menus and a “drawer” that streamlines navigation, search tools that let you quickly access courses and isolate student forum posts, and integrated audio/video recording options. It also includes a variety of pre-formatted templates that let you quickly customize your course with a variety of formats, styles, and fonts. Moodle 2018-19 isn’t your grandfather’s Moodle! (Adjunct instructors who attend this event are eligible for a $50 stipend.)

Technology offers new modes of teaching, such as Interactive Video Conferencing (IVC). This workshop will prepare you to use Zoom in a classroom, to think through the lens of the camera, and how to manage group work when some students are connecting virtually.

Staff are welcome to attend as space allows. This workshop will be “Zoomed” for those needing to attend remotely. It will also be recorded. Please contact Christy Mattingly for the link.

Join MNUDL’s Back-To-Debate Supply Drive

Your gently-used donation will prepare our debaters for success

The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, equips Twin Cities students with all the basics needed to become debaters: curriculum, coaches, tournaments, and supplies. As our high school, middle school, Spanish, and Somali debate programs grow each year, our need for supplies grows, too.

Our goal is to equip 100 more students with debate supplies in the 2018-19 school year!

Our MOST-NEEDED ITEM is expanding file folders/accordion folders!

Other helpful (new or gently used) items:
● 3-hole sheet protectors
● 2-pocket folders
● Highlighters
● Pens

Your support will help make our debate season a success!

Items can be picked up or dropped off at Augsburg University.
If you’d like to join our Back-to-Debate Supply Drive, please
contact us at mnudl@augsburg.edu to arrange your donation.
