Teaching Resources for New Faculty

Summer Opportunities to Learn

Ongoing workshops in strategies for online teaching, pedagogy, and inclusive teaching are available for you to engage with at any time during the summer.

Want to learn about the teaching tools at UMaine? Regular trainings to help you learn Brightspace (our learning management system), and ongoing trainings in Zoom (our web-conferencing tool) and Kaltura (our video streaming platform) are available to you throughout the summer.  Many of our programs are held virtually via Zoom, so we encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities at any point during the summer.

Want to start populating your course in Brightspace? Your course shells are available by early summer for you to start populating.  Email our faculty support team at citl@maine.edu to request a one-on-one consultation to get started.

Ready to start designing a course? Our talented team of Instructional Designers are available to meet, consult and support your process.  Request a consultation at any time (opens in new window). 

Start exploring our events and programs, and join in!

If you have any problems registering or logging in, please email citlworkshop@maine.edu.
