Training Webinars to be Hosted this Spring

At Panhandle State, we are always looking for ways to better serve our campus community. For the spring semester, faculty members have joined together to train other faculty and staff members who are interested in online learning materials. Two training webinars will be held to offer resources and gauge need to better address any questions we have across campus.

Provost, Dr. Julie Dinger stated, “These trainings were requested by the Deans and Department Chairs and I’m so pleased with the plan created by Dean Stephens and Ms. Smith. The webinars will highlight our faculty’s expertise and creativity in teaching and learning; these promise to be excellent sessions.”

Dean of Online Programs, Tye Stephens commented, “As we continue to expand our online programs and the use of online technology in all our courses, I’m hoping these trainings can help provide us all with common language as well as an opportunity to identify and address needs that instructors have. It’s important we take time to connect with each other personally and professionally, even in our current circumstances.”

Coordinator of Online Programs, Kim Smith stated, “We have certainly experienced firsthand the importance of adaptability and flexibility throughout the past year of navigating multiple methods of course delivery during a global pandemic. The collective growth across campus in relation to the use of technology in any learning environment is something to be admired. I expect the webinars to be very interactive in terms of lessons learned and identifying common topics of areas that could use additional professional development opportunities in the future. I believe these conversations will allow us to come together to share experiences and best practices to make us better as a whole.”

All faculty and staff members are welcome to attend the webinars, and are encouraged to send ideas and questions they hope to discuss. These questions should be sent in beforehand so a roundtable discussion can be formed prior to the meeting.
