Reminder: It's time to set up your Spring NYU Classes site

Don't make the mistake of merging your sections, activate them one-by-one

Activating your course site should take no more than a minute:   

1: Click on the Home tab in NYU Classes.
2: Choose Set Up Course Sites from the left.
3: Choose the correct term and ONLY ONE SECTION, unless you want to combine sections into one NYU Classes site.

Most faculty should only activate one course site at a time.  Selecting multiple sections will combine them into one NYU Classes site. To avoid this, you'll need to go through the "Setup Course Site" tool multiple times—once for each section.

Are your students using your feedback? 
Join us for lunch and explore fast ways to incorporate actionable feedback into your course

Thursday 12 December, 12.30-1.30pm @ KMC 4-120

Spending hours grading and giving students feedback, but not sure if they're even reading it? In this workshop we'll explore some small changes you can make to integrate fast, actionable, and personal feedback into your course. 

You should attend if:

  • You'd like to give students more feedback, but feel like you don't have the time to do it
  • You're interested in using tools that can provide automated feedback to students
  • You're curious about how to make the feedback you're already giving your students more effective

Our Zoom workshop was so popular we're hosting another, online.

Wednesday 11 December, 12.30-1.30pm

Did you know that there are ways to support student learning and engagement outside of the physical classroom? Zoom is a tool that everyone at NYU can now access. It's a powerful technology for your teaching toolkit. Join us to learn how to foster meaningful student discussion and collaboration using Zoom's video conferencing features such as breakout rooms, polling, interactive whiteboards, text-chat, and more. 

You should attend if:

  • You're curious about the new NYU-supported Zoom tool and how you could use it in your courses
  • You're interested in using  tools like live polling and breakout rooms with your students
  • You'd like to explore transitioning some of an upcoming or future course online and want to be prepared
