Teaching with Technology
Workshops and Office Hours
Learning Technologies offers free workshops to current UW faculty and staff for core UW teaching tools: Canvas, Panopto Lecture Capture, Poll Everywhere Classroom Response and Zoom Video Conferencing. You can also sign up for one of our online Office Hours sessions to get realtime guidance with these tools.
If you are interested in exploring these tools at your own pace, we encourage to click on the links to the specific services listed above, or check out our Teaching with UW Technologies resource in Canvas.
As always, if you need assistance with any of our teaching and learning tools, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org, call us at (206) 221.5000 (Option 3), or drop by Odegaard Library Room 230.
Our colleagues at UW Continuum College have opened their workshops and office hours to all UW Faculty and Staff. They offer training on Canvas, Zoom, and other UW tools, with a particular focus on pedagogy and instructional design. If you’re looking for additional structured trainings or a chance to attend office hours with an Instructional Designer, they are happy to help.
Productivity and Creativity
We also provide free workshops for all current UW students, faculty and staff to develop skills with creative tools like Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Audacity, or Digital Video Editing systems like Adobe Premiere and iMovie, as well as digital productivity software like Microsoft Excel, “R” and R Studio (when available). Office hours for some of these tools are offered.
