The Pro-D opportunities below are open to Classroom / Blended teachers who wants to explore the possibility of using WCLN resources to support their students in a remote and/or blended situation. If new to WCLN, you may want to see related video.

Remote Teaching #1 - September 1st

If you wish to spend your preparation time focusing on your students' needs and not trying to build online resources, you may wish to take a look at WCLN resources.

Make an account at WCLN.ca (green button in the top-right corner WCLN.ca). It might just give you some remote teaching ideas, or it might lead you to a full-package teaching support system for your classes.

In this virtual session, we will take a closer look at WCLN resources and all of your related options.

SESSION #1 RECORDING


If you want your own copy of a WCLN course, you need to contact the Online Ed contact in your district as most districts have their own Moodle (or Canvas or D2L) site for hosting district teachers. In this session, we will outline "Tips and Tricks" for those who have (or plan to have) their own course.

Remote Teaching #2 - September 2nd

This virtual session continues from yesterday's WCLN.ca session for those who now have their own online course(s) for their students.

In this session, we will explore the functional details of your new course(s). How do you add students to your course? How do you mark assignments and quizzes in your course? How does the gradebook work? How to add discussion forums? How to easily communicate with parents through the course? Other tips and tricks for using Moodle and resources.

Note: If you missed yesterday's session but are already familiar with Moodle and WCLN (and have already requested a course), then feel free to join us and see if we can help you by sharing some "tips and tricks."
