UAB has become a member of WCET, the WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies. WCET is a national membership-based, non-profit organization whose mission is to accelerate the adoption of effective practices and policies, advancing excellence in technology-enhanced teaching and learning in higher education. Because UAB is a WCET member, UAB faculty and staff can now access WCET member-only resources, including the WCETNews and WCETDiscuss emails and the Frontiers blog.
UAB eLearning facilitates the Apply the Quality Matters Rubric Workshop (APPQMR) to help UAB faculty learn more about Quality Matters (QM), an internationally-recognized program. The summer session will be offered in June from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. The eLearning staff has created a Doodle Poll to determine a date for the June workshop. Faculty and staff that are interested in attending the workshop must be able to attend the full day to get credit for the course. If you are interested in attending the APPQMR workshop in June, please complete the Doodle Poll by May 13. Learn more about the workshop.
On Thursday, May 26th at 12:00 to 1:30 PM, CT, eLearning & Professional Studies (eLPS) will host a live viewing and discussion of the Copyright for Online Course Materials webcast by Academic Impressions (AI). The webcast will include legal considerations, case scenarios, and current information in the area of copyright and ownership of online course materials.
