University Teaching Resources
The Office of Faculty Affairs hosted 8 workshops facilitated by the Center for Teaching and VUIT in March. Workshop sessions discussed the variety of tools available to Vanderbilt faculty including two Brightspace tools that help move classes online: a screen capture tool that allows faculty to create video lectures that can easily be shared with students, as well as a video conferencing tool that enables live online meetings. If you missed the workshop, you can access it online (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Esr6s5sZ0IY)
