SF State Deb & Heidi
Ashley, this is repetitive for you, and we’ll be talking about all of this in our presentation, so don’t need to repeat it for the group, but to make it more convenient for you to copy into your slides…We completed our Online Teaching Lab Winter Learning Community in January (40 faculty). Our 3-part QLT Hybrid Workshop starts next week. Yesterday we did a workshop on Video for Online Teaching and Learning workshop. Lots more to come!
James - Chico
Chico update: QLT FLC cohort running, CAL$ cohort running and others. New ed tech organization in discussion which may position Chico to be more agile and effective. No formal LMS migration discussions. Full Ally deployment and remediation services rolling.

Monica Munoz-CSUEB
CSUEB: working on getting more QM certified courses (currently at 140 total) we are running webinars and workshops that focus on inclusivity (Ally and GrackleDocs and making courses accessible, Designing for Mobile Learning, etc.) and we are currently looking for a new adaptive learning tool because Smart Sparrow has been acquired by Pearson so our Online Transfer Orientation and various department modules will need to be rebuild in a new platform

CSUN - This Winter we did an eLearning Institute focused on online teaching/QLT and will continue work with them throughout the semester with a final day in May (11 faculty). We are running our Online Teaching and Learning Workshop series, which is a three part, nine hour workshop for two groups (20 total). We have a group doing the QLT Peer Review course coming up (7). Looking at doing some more internal and then external reviews with QLT. Then lots of other professional development programs not directly related to QLT.

@april we remediate PDFs in house. We are working on a guide for instructors to help them with the top 5 issues we see.
Hillary Kaplowitz
They will be doing a self review and internal peer review
Jeff Suarez-Grant (LA)
FYI: LA has an ID position open too.
Eric Davis (CPP)
@Barbara: On behalf of April, we'd love to see your documentation if you're willing to share! PDFs are definitely a pain point
Hillary Kaplowitz
We have an open position too right now at CSU Northridge! Beautiful SoCal!
Tonia Malone - SLO
SLO: Catherine is our QOLT person so I am not sure what she is doing - all though it is a lot. We are migrated to Canvas - so my whole world is Canvas right now. Ally is purchased and we are looking at doing a soft roll-out in Fall 2020. Inclusivity is all via Sarah and she is working on supporting inclusive teaching via the CTLT.

Thanks Barbara for the heads up!
Ashley Skylar
Love the humanizing aspects! of your trainings
Kristin Denver
Sorry if I missed this - Approximately how many participants per facilitated session? Just curious about the bandwidth needed for facilitator engagement.
Kristin Denver
Thank you :)
Marjorie Shepard
This is fabulous. Both your presentation and the asynchronous program you developed. Thank you
Barbara Taylor
Would be great if you could share your course with us.
Jeff Suarez-Grant (LA)
Thanks Deb and Heidi!
SF State Deb & Heidi
Hi Barbara, we’re trying to figure out the best option for sharing the course - our LMS requires an SFSU.edu email address, but we’re very interested in sharing! Thanks!
Barbara Taylor
We are a Moodle campus and I can put it on one of our servers that doesn’t require a CSUSM account. =)
Barbara Taylor
I would need a backup of the course to restore it.
Ashley Skylar
SF State Deb & Heidi
@Barbara, interesting! I’ll follow up with you via email. What’s your email?
Barbara Taylor
