Preconference Training Workshops

Today more so than ever before, keeping students engaged during class is a massive challenge facing educators, whether your students are in onsite classes or in mixed groups studying onsite and remotely.  In this workshop, Prof Holly Hapke and Dr. Louise Robson will share how they have used Echo360 extensively for hybrid teaching in the last academic year.  We will explore the Echo360 experience accessing content synchronously and asynchronously, responding to polls, interacting in teaching and discuss common issues for educators and students.
