Courses and Workshops

Assessment of Student Learning

Learn strategies to evidence learning and align course elements that promote achievement of student learning outcomes. Participants will explore classroom assessment techniques as they develop or refine their assessment plan for a course to support learning outcomes at the course, program, and institutional level.

This workshop is open to all faculty and fulfills one of the requirements for Hawkeye's two-year faculty induction program. There are two 2-hour sessions for each offering.

Registering for the February 26 session automatically enrolls you in the March 12 session.

Pre-registration is required. Select a session to register.

Canvas Basic Training

This two-hour session is intended for all faculty to meet the college requirement of using Canvas for all Hawkeye courses. Training will cover posting the syllabus, setting up the gradebook and grading methods, structuring the Canvas course, and implementing a few communication tools. We can connect participants through ZOOM to join our session from a distance. Please contact Sarah Boldt, ext.1693, prior to the session if you are interested in this option.

Improving Your Online Course (IYOC); Face-to-Face Session

This is the same as the two-week online course except offered in a face-to-face setting in one full day!

Apply the underlying principles of the Quality Matters (QM) Rubric. Participants use the QM Rubric to review their own online or hybrid course and develop a course improvement plan.

The content is based on the essential Specific Review Standards of the Quality Matters Rubric. Participants come away with a plan for course improvement so enrolling in the workshop with a pre-developed online or hybrid course is required.

Only Hawkeye Community College registrations are accepted here. If you are from another college please contact your Quality Matters Coordinator to register on the Quality Matters website. (A minimum of 6 registrations are required for each session.)

Panopto 101: The Basics

Panopto is a user-friendly and flexible video capture and streaming solution that empowers instructors and students to enhance learning through the use of video. Panopto provides a method for delivering content and tools as a third-party integration for instructors to enable within their Canvas courses.

This training session will walk you through capturing, editing, and sharing recordings of any classroom dynamic using Panopto.

Pre-registration is encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome. Select a session to register.

Quality Matters Self Review of an Online or Hybrid Course

Any full-time or adjunct instructors can sign-up to receive support from a certified QM Peer Reviewer as they seek to develop or improve the design of an online or hybrid course. Guided by the Quality Matters Rubric and a course development checklist, instructors will complete a self-review of their course using QM’s online course review system to earn a certificate of completion which can be applied towards their Quality Faculty Plan portfolio.

Pre-registration is required. Select a session to register.

Strategies for Effective Online Learning

Hawkeye Community College is committed to providing a quality experience for the online student and recognizes that course development and delivery requires a level of organization and preparedness different than the traditional classroom. For online instructors, and increasingly for face-to-face instructors supplementing their courses with online resources, it is important to pay careful attention to course organization and design that improves student engagement, learning, and retention. During this short course, participants will experience online learning from the student perspective and examine learner-centered practices for designing virtual environments. This workshop is open to all faculty and fulfills one of the requirements for Hawkeye's two-year faculty induction program.

The workshop is moderated online/asynchronously for three weeks. No face-to-face meetings are held.

Pre-registration is required. Select a session to register.
