We will offer two distinct faculty-mentoring programs, each of which will assist faculty with becoming familiar with new technologies and communication platforms and to help faculty create online materials.
One-on-one training through Microsoft Teams: Through this program, faculty can have one-on-one training with a faculty member on topics such as D2L, BB Collaborate Ultra, or Microsoft Teams. This program is offered through Microsoft Teams and will offer live support to faculty who have questions about online teaching. Instructions for how to sign up for a virtual meeting with a peer mentor faculty mentor can be found here.
GeorgiaVIEW: This program is offered through GeorgiaVIEW and allows faculty to post questions about online teaching in a discussion forum and search for articles and videos about online and remote teaching. Once questions have been posted, a team of peer mentors will answer the questions depending on their area of expertise. The GeorgiaVIEW platform is also intended to keep a record of past questions and responses for future reference.
