Teaching with Collaborate Ultra

Teaching with Collaborate Ultra is a two-session online workshop that focuses on developing skills for teaching interactively online using Collaborate Ultra, our web-conferencing platform. In the first session, you will experience and discuss design and teaching strategies to create active learning environments when teaching in Ultra. You will learn about staying organized as an online moderator and supporting students with minor Ultra technical challenges.
