Having trouble getting started with your hybrid or online course design? Join UAF eCampus instructional designers for a facilitated "barn raising," which lays out a set of tasks and deadlines for you to get your course online and ready to go in just three days.

The first 10-20 minutes of each hour will be demos or resources from the instructional design team. In the following 40-50 minutes, participants will work on that activity. If you need assistance with any one topic either use the Zoom chat or jump into open lab hours to ask a question. Let’s raise the roof!

The next barn raising will take place Aug. 17-19, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (breaks are built in to the agenda).
