Shout-out this week to Karen Villalobos, fellow Economics faculty, for sharing her use of Jeopardy labs when she was part of our "Some Good News: Lessons Learned in a Very Strange Year" panel in April 2021! Thanks to Karen, and to all of the other faculty members who shared their valuable time and ideas with us.

If you find yourself asking questions such as...
Did you know that he Writing Center provides valuable resources for you and your students? They will arrange to make an instructional visit to your classroom in-person, work with you to schedule a time for you to bring them to the Center, or coordinate a virtual Writing Center orientation. They also have created a Writing Tutoring resource page that you can include in your Canvas courses. The page has a direct link to online tutoring, making it very convenient for students.
The Instructure Community has step-by-step instructions for importing commons resources into your course, and you can access the page, by searching the Canvas Commons. Once you have logged into Canvas, click on the "Commons" button in your Canvas global navigation and once on the "Commons" page, search for “All About Writing Tutoring Fall 2021” by Shannon Lujan.
Would you like to have tutoring tailored to the specific assignments in your course? The Writing Center tutors can do that! Just email them a copy of your assignment instructions, grading rubric, and its due date so that they can plan ahead.
Do you want to make a visit to the Writing Center a requirement of one of your assignments? The Writing Center can help with that too! Just have your students print out and bring the attached Tutoring Action Plan with them when they visit.

All good things must come to an end; today's post is the last official Tech Tuesday of the 2020-2021 academic year. Also, at 2:30 this afternoon, Jen P. and I will be hosting our final Live Online...Live! session for this year. It's going to be a great session, with a bunch of your CGCC colleagues sharing Some Good News from this crazy year.
Fear not - we'll be back and ready to go in August!
April is almost over, and nobody wants one more thing to think about right now - which is exactly why we are rounding out this year's Tech Tuesday offerings with a SUPER-EASY, SUPER-FUN (and free! no account necessary!) tech tool.
Chandler-Gilbert has hundreds of hybrid course offerings scheduled for Fall 2021. The question is - do students know what 'hybrid' means?
Moreover, do we?
Want to help your students be prepared for the first day of class but don't want to publish your Canvas course? Use the Course distribution list for your course section in Gmail! All courses get them once they are active in SIS. When you send an email this way any student that is registered for your course at the time will receive your message*! Remember to Blind Carbon Copy your students so that if they reply all the other students will not receive the email. This is the same as checking the box to send an individual message to students in Canvas.
*This function remains available for 90 days after the semester ends, but you need to add ".completed" to the address. Example:
Current Student Gmail Group:
Completed Student Gmail Group (students have been graded in SIS):
