Welcome Use this thread to try out this format  

Hi everyone,

This thread is here just so you can try a test post. You can attach a file if you like. You can also edit your post after you've submitted it.

We will be using several discussion threads throughout the workshop, so you will want to be facile with this format.

Good afternoon everyone.

I expect to be out of touch part of Monday and all of Tuesday, so I'm checking in now to make sure I have the hang of things and am ready to start right up on Wednesday morning.

Have a great weekend. I'm looking forward to working with all of you next week.

Hi All -- looking forward to an interesting week -- either with you all, or on a Jury (hopefully the former!)

Hi Everybody,
Just got back from watching our local short season single A team win their first game of the season! No small feat since they are affiliated with the Pirates. I love summer! And I'm looking forward to this workshop, too! Wow, that's a lot of exclamation points!!

Hello! Looking forward to learning from everyone's experiences. I'll be in and out of a board meeting Thursday / Friday so apologies for slow postings.

I've never taught online, but will be teaching 1 course online this fall so it's very timely for me too. I have no experiences to share, unfortunately.

Looking forward to this! I'm teaching right now, so I'll have to miss a few of the morning sessions, but will try to catch up!

Have not taught online (although I use Blackboard extensively in face to face classes - and will also with the switch to Desire2Learn). Our department currently allows only 1 or 2 courses in the online environment and so far lab courses have NOT been allowed to go into the online format. So I am on a fact finding mission to provide feedback and best teaching practices for our discussions.
