Online Collaborative Training and Workgroup Labs

The UH Mānoa Outreach College and College of Education are hosting an 8 week series of Online Collaborative Training and Workgroup Labs (“Collab Labs”). Each Collab Lab is facilitated by instructional designers and will consist of a short presentation on a topic, followed by discussions on specific topics focused on faculty needs. The purpose of the Collab Labs is to assist instructors with the planning and development of their online courses. Bring your design questions and we’ll do our best to answer them! Participants are invited to attend part or all of the sessions as suits their needs and schedules. In other words, you do not need to attend for the full 3 hours, although you are welcome to do so. These Collab labs are a great opportunity for you to learn new ideas from experienced online instructors and your peers.

To help us tailor the Collab Lab Series to your needs, please complete our short Collab Lab Needs Questionnaire. We’d like to know what you’re most interested in learning about or working on in preparation for online teaching.

Complete Questionnaire

Because of Zoom security issues, to participate in any or all of the Collab Labs you will need to register. This is a one-time registration for all Collab Labs in the series.
