Designing for Students in Desire2Learn

Courtney Fell, Academic Technology Design Team, OIT
Learning management systems, such as Desire2Learn,
are simply another tool for your teaching toolbox. As you
draft your syllabus and plan for the semester, envision
the online student experience and consider how you can
create a space for meaningful student interaction. In this
workshop, we will explore ways you can design a D2L
environment that is student-centered and engaging.

in STEM fields as well as the arts and humanities.
Participants will discuss these images and their
messages. Then, they will propose solutions they
might pursue when they use or create visuals for their
classroom materials.

Technologies for Assessment

Rebecca Kallemeyn and Viktoriya Oliynyk, Academic Technology Design Team, OIT
Frequent assessments benefit student learning in
many ways, but administering these assessments
can be challenging and time-consuming. Technology
can streamline this process, saving instructor time
and providing more timely feedback to students. In
this session we will review a selection of universitysupported
technologies, such as Turnitin.com, D2Ls
assessment tools, and Qualtrics, which you can use to
assess student learning and gather student feedback
on your course.
